Niagara defenseman Albers suspended one extra game for head contact penalty

Atlantic Hockey has suspended Niagara junior defenseman Kevin Albers for one game, adding to the one game ban he incurred on Feb. 1.

Albers was given a major penalty for contact to the head and a game disqualification at the 32-second mark of the third period on Saturday night (Feb. 1) against Sacred Heart.

The disqualification penalty results in a one-game suspension, which Albers served Thursday night against Canisius.

Albers will now sit out the Purple Eagles’-Canisius contest on Saturday, Feb. 8.
