Notre Dame announced Friday that it has appealed the one-game suspension that the CCHA handed out to Riley Sheahan on Thursday (Jan. 19), but Saturday, the CCHA announced it has upheld their ruling and Sheahan will be ineligible to play in tonight’s game against Michigan.
The league’s ruling on Jan. 19 came after a review of a hit that occurred at the 14:39 mark of the second period in the Jan. 13 game against Western Michigan. According to the CCHA, the review showed Sheahan delivering an “illegal hit” to a Western Michigan player.
Sheahan played in Friday night’s game against Michigan. He is eligible to return to the lineup on Jan. 27.
