    Set has the best hair in College Hockey. Maybe, in all of Sports. Free Seth !!!!

    No word on any suspensions for the referees? ECAC has the worst refs hands down in college hockey. They screw up and Appert sits. What a joke. But he does have great hair.

    First Schafer (2 years ago), now Appert. Come on other 10, follow suit!

    A typical knee jerk reaction from ECAC management on a valid protest reaction on a questionable call from the coach.To eliminate questionable calls from referees, instant video replay technology should be implemented by the league. Hopefully, that will occur as quickly as possible.

    Appert is a class act if he brought it to far it had to be a major screw up on the part of the officials.

    I recall Union was one of the worst ECAC team in the early 90s. RPI hockey may want to look into what clicks for U.

      As I recall both RPI and Union are nationally ranked, and RPI just beat Union, so I think RPI is clicking just fine without looking into what Clicks for Union.

    Seth conducts himself as one of the classiest acts in college sports. This had to be one major screw up to set him off.

      I watched the video and I think the refs got it wrong, however his post game comments were the cause for the suspension. He was asked if he was concerned about the officiating and he replied “It’s the ref who should be concerned”
