Denver freshman Butcher suspended one game ‘for not doing the right thing’

According to the Denver Post, Denver freshman defenseman Will Butcher has been suspended for Friday’s game at Colorado College for breaking one of DU coach Jim Montgomery’s unofficial rules.

“For not doing the right thing,” Montgomery said to the Post. “It wasn’t a team rule, but more of one of my obvious unwritten rules.”

Butcher will be eligible to play Saturday against the Tigers in Denver.

Butcher has played in all eight games for the Pioneers this season and has recorded two goals and an assist.
