BU goalie Millan skips class, benched for Vermont game

The Boston Hockey Blog has reported that Boston University senior goaltender Kieran Millan will be benched for Friday’s game against Vermont for skipping class.

Millan is the third BU player in three weeks to be benched for skipping class as forward Kevin Gilroy and junior defenseman Max Nicastro missed an away game at Massachusetts-Lowell on Nov. 5.

“Rules are rules,” BU coach Jack Parker said in the report. “We bench other guys for it. (Millan) is not above it. He’s been warned and he wasn’t listening.”

Senior goaltender Grant Rollheiser will get the start Friday night. Parker said he had “no idea” who would be in net on Saturday.

  1. it was Rawlings blocking the door. He turned away Milan and a few others but his defensemen were nowhere to be found so everyone else got in.

  2. Could you imagine anything like this happening in any other sport?  In NCAA football I’m pretty sure murder only warrants a week suspension.

  3. I can’t tell you how many times I skipped class in college.  Its part of the college experience.  Heck, the professors skip class sometimes and you have a little note on the door saying class in canceled for today.  Give me a break.   This isn’t high school.  These are adults.  If they fail classes, then suspend them or kick them off the team.
