Yale removes Bourbonais from roster, but reason unknown

Senior forward Clinton Bourbonais has been removed from Yale’s roster, but Bulldogs’ coach Keith Allain isn’t giving a reason, according to the Yale Daily News and the New Haven Register.

Yale director of sports publicity Steve Conn said Sunday that Allain would have no further comment on the matter.

Bourbonais had a goal and an assist in an exhibition game against Ontario Tech in October, but was a healthy scratch for the team’s first five games of the regular season, returning to the lineup at Quinnipiac on Nov. 9 before being taken off the roster prior to the Bulldogs’ game versus Sacred Heart on Nov. 16.

The native of Dexter, Mich., had 15 goals and 42 points in 86 career games at Yale.
