WCHA issues one-game suspension to Alabama-Huntsville’s Reinhardt

The WCHA announced Wednesday a one-game suspension to Alabama-Huntsville junior defenseman Ben Reinhardt as a result of his actions in the Dec. 14 game against Minnesota State.

Reinhardt’s suspension was determined after a review by the league office of an illegal check at 13:50 of the third period. At the time of the incident, Reinhardt was assessed a five-minute major for hitting from behind and a 10-minute game misconduct.

Reinhardt will miss the Chargers’ next game on Friday, Dec. 27, at Wisconsin.
