ECAC suspends St. Lawrence forward Flanagan two games

The ECAC today announced that St. Lawrence senior forward Sean Flanagan has been assessed a one-game suspension, in accordance with the league’s supplemental discipline process, as the result of his actions in the St. Lawrence at Yale contest last Saturday.  

The action was taken after review of an incident that occurred with six seconds remaining in the third period. Flanagan was assessed a major penalty and game disqualification, which per NCAA ice hockey rules includes an automatic one-game suspension, by the on-ice officials.

Based upon the league’s action, Flanagan is not eligible to compete in St. Lawrence’s next two games. He will fulfill the game disqualification penalty Friday when the Saints host Princeton and then serve the league-issued suspension Saturday when St. Lawrence plays Quinnipiac.
