College Hockey:
Vermont Hockey Hazing Alleged

— The University of Vermont is investigating a possible hazing incident involving one of its athletic teams.

WCAX-TV in Burlington, Vt., is reporting that it has confirmed that the incident, which involves the men’s ice hockey team, relates to the consumption of alcohol, and that students were forced to perform “degrading” acts. No students were reported injured in the alleged hazing.

Thus far, Vermont officials have not confirmed any of the reports. All inquiries to the athletic department are being redirected to the university’s public relations director, Enrique Correderra.

The university is currently working with an outside investigator to determine the merit of the allegations, and whether disciplinary action will occur. Practices have been closed to the media since Wednesday.
