College Hockey:
MSU Cuts Jackson from Team

— Michigan State freshman center Jeremy Jackson has been dismissed from the team by head coach Ron Mason due to “accountability issues in the classroom and with the team,” according to a school news release.



The Los Angeles native currently ranks tied for fourth on the team with 19 points in 23 games, but had scored just four points in his last 10 contests. He missed four of the Spartans’ last five games for disciplinary reasons.

For the time being, Jackson is still attending classes at MSU.

The 5-foot-9-inch Jackson played on the U.S. National Under-18 team, and played his Tier II junior hockey for Chilliwack of the BCJHL before coming to Michigan State. Jackson also played basketball for the high school he attended in Canada.
