Ohio State’s Tarr suspended one game by women’s WCHA

The women’s WCHA announced Wednesday a one-game suspension to Ohio State forward Ally Tarr for her actions in the Feb. 10 game against Minnesota.

At the time of the incident, Tarr was assessed a five-minute major penalty for contact to the head and a game misconduct. She hit Gophers’ forward Emily West, who had to be helped off the ice. West did not play in the rest of Friday’s game or in Saturday’s rematch.

Tarr’s suspension was determined after a review of the incident under the WCHA’s supplementary discipline policy and procedures and was upheld by the league’s executive committee following an appeal by OSU.

Tarr will serve the suspension on Friday (Feb. 17) versus Wisconsin.
