College Hockey:
Frattin Rejoins North Dakota Months After Ouster

Forward Matt Frattin, dismissed from the North Dakota team in August because of a violation of team rules, is back practicing with the Fighting Sioux, the school announced Tuesday.

Frattin, a junior, has enrolled in spring semester classes at North Dakota and is eligible to play beginning with the Sioux’s game against Niagara at the Shillelagh Tournament on Saturday.

The team dropped Frattin after two run-ins with the law last summer.

In July, he and former North Dakota teammate Joe Finley were arrested for disorderly conduct after campus police observed them throwing cups, plates, a kitchen table and a lawnmower from a residential garage.

In August, Frattin was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.

Sioux coach Dave Hakstol told the Grand Forks Herald that Frattin will travel with the team to the Shillelagh Tournament, but it’s unclear whether he’ll play.
