Denver’s Larraza suspended one game by NCHC for head shot against Colorado College

The NCHC announced Tuesday that it has issued a one-game suspension to Denver senior forward Zac Larraza as the result of an illegal hit during the Pioneers game against Colorado College on Saturday, Feb. 21.

Larraza was suspended after a review of a play in which a hit was delivered to the head of a Colorado College player, who was not in possession of the puck, at 15:53 of the first period at Magness Arena.

Larraza will be required to serve the suspension during Denver’s next game on Friday, Feb. 27, against Miami and is eligible to return for the series finale against the RedHawks the following evening.
