Boston University’s Somerby suspended for one game by Hockey East

Hockey East suspended Boston University defenseman Doyle Somerby for Saturday’s game against Vermont after he was penalized for a hit in Friday’s win over the Catamounts.

The one-game suspension came after Somerby was called for interference on a check.

Somerby, a sophomore, has played in 21 of the Terriers’ 22 games, with three assists.

He’s eligible to return in a Jan. 30 game against Massachusetts.
