Northeastern’s Snydeman suspended 1 game for hit that sidelined Merrimack goalie Tirronen

Hockey East suspended Northeastern senior forward Torin Snydeman for one game on Saturday after he collided with Merrimack goaltender Rasmus Tirronen early in Friday’s game.

Snydeman was given a goaltender interference penalty during the game; Tirronen had to leave the game with what the Boston Herald reported was a suspected concussion.

“He’s out for a while,” Merrimack coach Mark Dennehy said of Tirronen. “He got elbowed in the head.”

Snydeman has two goals and 12 penalty minutes in 10 games this season for Northeastern. He’ll miss Saturday’s home game against Merrimack.
