Gopher Women Suspend Two

Minnesota women’s hockey coach Laura Halldorson has suspended seniors Nadine Muzerall and Betsey Kukowski for this weekend’s series at MSU-Mankato due to an unspecified violation of team rules.

Muzerall is the team’s all-time leading scorer and led the nation with 49 goals last season. She missed last weekend’s series with Ohio State due to a concussion suffered Oct. 15.

Kukowski, who spent most of the second half of last season on a line with Muzerall, had not missed a game since the end of the 1998-99 season.
