College Hockey:
Anchorage Defenseman Lafranchise Out for First Semester

Alaska-Anchorage defenseman Kane Lafranchise is academically ineligible for the first semester, the Anchorage Daily News reported.

Lafranchise is the Seawolves’ top returning defenseman in terms of last season’s offensive production. He had three goals and 12 assists.

“It’s definitely going to hurt us,” Seawolves coach Dave Shyiak told the newspaper. “The second half of last season, he really came on offensively. But, with [Lafranchise out], it gives some other guys opportunity.”
