College Hockey:
Denver freshman Butcher suspended one game ‘for not doing the right thing’

According to the Denver Post, Denver freshman defenseman Will Butcher has been suspended for Friday’s game at Colorado College for breaking one of DU coach Jim Montgomery’s unofficial rules.

“For not doing the right thing,” Montgomery said to the Post. “It wasn’t a team rule, but more of one of my obvious unwritten rules.”

Butcher will be eligible to play Saturday against the Tigers in Denver.

Butcher has played in all eight games for the Pioneers this season and has recorded two goals and an assist.

    Where is the written list of Coach Montgomery’s unwritten rules so I can be sure not to violate them?

      Asking for a written list of the unwritten rules is in violation of the unwritten rules. 2 game suspension for you friend.

    I don’t know what Monty’s unwritten rules are either but I can tell you that during his 3 years here in Dubuque there wasn’t a single off-ice incident involving any of his players. Any players I ever came in contact were polite and courteous. I hope I’m not sensing some impatience because of the Pioneer’s somewhat slow start because this guy WILL be successful and you will enjoy the style of hockey he coaches.
