College Hockey:
CCHA suspends Miami’s Biggs two games

The CCHA announced Wednesday that Miami freshman forward Tyler Biggs has been suspended two games under the league’s supplemental discipline process as the result of an incident that occurred in a game against Michigan State on Jan. 6.

Near the 3:02 mark of the third period, Biggs delivered an illegal hit directly to the head of a Michigan State player. No penalty was called on the play.

Biggs is ineligible to play in Miami’s games on Jan. 13-14 at Lake Superior State. He is eligible to return to the lineup on Jan. 20 at home against Western Michigan.

    Well deserved I’m sure, even though not one of the 2 refs or 2 linesmen called it.  Too much of this is destroying the game.  Biggs better learn his lesson now or he’ll turn into another Brad marchand or Matt Cooke.

    Dear
    Mr. Pletsch and Mr. Piotrowski – Please review the game film from the Friday
    1/13/2012 ND vs. WMU game for an incident that occurred at 14:39 of the 2nd
    period. A 5 min major penalty – blow to the head – was called againsDear Mr.
    Pletsch and Mr. Piotrowski – Please review the game film from the Friday 1/13/2012
    ND vs. WMU game for an incident that occurred at 14:39 of the 2nd period. A 5
    min major penalty – blow to the head – was called against the wrong player. #11
    Jeff Costello was mistakenly called and removed from the game while the player
    who committed the infraction played the balance of the game (#4 Riley Sheahan).
    The player who was hit illegally was #23 Dane Walters. He was injured from the
    hit and was not able to play the remainder of the game and also missed the
    following nights game. In my opinion, a 2 game suspension for Riley Sheahan
    would be sufficient.
