College Hockey:
Lake Superior State’s Perrault suspended one game by CCHA

The CCHA announced Thursday that Lake Superior State sophomore defenseman Andrew Perrault has been suspended for one game as the result of an incident that occurred in a game against Michigan on Jan. 7.

The action was taken by the league after a review of an incident that occurred near the 19:08 mark of the second period that showed Perrault delivering an illegal hit to the head of a Michigan player.

No penalty was called on the play.

Perrault is ineligible to play in LSSU’s game on Jan. 13 against Miami. He is eligible to return to the lineup on Jan. 14.

    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 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.

      Dane Walters received a concussion & separated shoulder as a result of #4 Riley Sheahans vicious hit. I would hope the CCHA will look at the film & give this player the appropriate punishment.We my have lost Dane for the season as a result of Sheahans hit.I am surprised there is not more discussion on this.

    According to sources inside the WMU program Dane is not out for the season.
