WCHA suspends Minnesota women’s defenseman McMillen one game

The WCHA women’s conference announced Tuesday that it has assessed a one-game suspension to Minnesota junior defenseman Milica McMillen.

The suspension is a result of McMillen’s game misconduct infraction for contact to the head that occurred at the 7:59 mark of the third period last Saturday, Feb. 21, at Bemidji State.

Minnesota’s next scheduled game is game one of the best-of-three WCHA first round playoff series this Friday, Feb. 27, against Minnesota State. McMillen is eligible to return for game two of the series on Saturday, Feb. 28.
