Army freshman Plageman given one-game ban by Atlantic Hockey

Atlantic Hockey has suspended Army freshman forward Kyle Plageman for one game under the league’s supplemental discipline policy.

Plageman was given a major penalty for contact to the head and a game misconduct at the 19:58 mark of the first period against Merrimack on Oct. 26.

Upon further review by AHA commissioner Bob DeGregorio and supervisor of officials Gene Binda, it was determined that Plageman targeted the head of the Merrimack player.

Plageman will miss the Black Knights’ next game on Friday, Nov. 1, against Connecticut, but is eligible to return Nov. 2 when Army hosts Bentley.
