The NCHC has issued a one-game suspension to Western Michigan freshman forward Jade McMullen after an illegal hit during the Broncos game at Clarkson on Saturday, Oct. 24.

McMullen was suspended after a review of a play in which a hit was delivered to the back of a Clarkson player at 14:40 of the second period Saturday at Cheel Arena in Potsdam, N.Y.
