Rensselaer forward Wood suspended two games by ECAC Hockey

ECAC Hockey announced Tuesday that Rensselaer sophomore forward Jake Wood has been assessed a two-game suspension as the result of his actions in the Rensselaer-Union game on Saturday, Jan. 24, at the Times Union Center in Albany, N.Y.

The league action was taken after review of an incident that occurred at the 19:13 mark of the third period where Wood was given a major penalty for hitting from behind and a game misconduct.

Wood is not eligible to compete in Rensselaer’s next two games – Friday, Jan. 30, at Dartmouth and Friday, Feb. 6, at St. Lawrence.


  1. Skated at full speed into the back of the Union Captain driving his head into the pipe with 43 seconds remaining in the game. Union player was bleeding badly and needed stiches. Wood is a sophomore who has played in 23 games and scored 4 points and is 3ed in the ECAC in penalty minutes. A typical RPI Goon.
