Big Ten suspends Penn State defenseman Yanis one game

The Big Ten announced Wednesday that Penn State sophomore defenseman Mark Yanis has been suspended for one game as a result of an incident that occurred in the Nittany Lions’ game against Michigan State on Saturday, Jan. 18.

The action was taken by the conference after a review of an incident that occurred near the 14:37 mark of the third period and resulted in Yanis receiving a major penalty for hitting from behind and a game misconduct.

Yanis is ineligible to play in Penn State’s next game on Saturday, Jan. 25 against Boston College.
