WCHA Suspends North Dakota’s Frattin for Hit

The WCHA suspended North Dakota’s Matt Frattin late Monday for the forward’s hit on Minnesota’s Kevin Wehrs on Sunday.

Frattin, a junior, was called for a major contact-to-the-head penalty in the second period of Sunday’s WCHA playoff series-clinching victory.

He will be out of the lineup for the Fighting Sioux’s WCHA Final Five play-in game against Minnesota-Duluth on Thursday.

Frattin, who was suspended by the team last offseason after two arrests but was reinstated after the holiday break, had four goals in the three-game series against the Gophers.

He has nine goals and 15 points in 21 games this season.

The WCHA said the suspension was determined after a review of the incident under the WCHA Supplementary Discipline Policy and Procedures.
