Michigan suspends Fallon, Llewellyn for rest of season

Michigan has suspended freshman forward Jacob Fallon and senior defenseman Tristin Llewellyn for the rest of the season, according to a published report in the Michigan Daily.

Head coach Red Berenson said the suspensions were for “violating team expectations.”

Michigan hockey SID Matt Trevor confirmed the report to be true to USCHO Wednesday night.

“I hope he stays in school and graduates,” Berenson said of Llewellyn. “We’ll give him that support, but we can’t keep him on the team.”

Berenson also said that Fallon will have a chance to get back on the team next year, provided his behavior improves.

Last season, Fallon was suspended by the U.S. National Team Development Program and later left the NTDP for the USHL’s Indiana Ice.
