College Hockey:
While rehabbing injury, Northeastern’s Vermeersch suspended for breaking team rules

Northeastern senior forward Garrett Vermeersch has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules, according to the Huntington News.

Vermeersch was already out after suffering a high-ankle sprain earlier this month and has not played since the Beanpot championship game against Boston College on Feb. 11.

“Garrett Vermeersch right now has got a high-ankle sprain [and] he is not eligible to play because of a high-ankle sprain,” Northeastern coach Jim Madigan told the News. “During his injury and his rehab, I’ve suspended him indefinitely for violating team rules.

“He’s still not eligible to play from a health perspective and in the meantime, he broke team rules.”

    Some tough stand The Hounds are taking while he’s not going to be
    playing (““During his injury and his rehab, I’ve suspended him.) I can
    only imagine the hue and cry if a non-doormat team (say, if it were BU) had coddled a player like this.
