Boston University’s McAvoy suspended one game by Hockey East

Hockey East on Saturday suspended Boston University freshman defenseman Charlie McAvoy for one game.

McAvoy was ineligible for the Terriers’ game Saturday against Providence.

He was penalized on three different occasions in Friday’s 1-1 tie against the Friars, the last of which was a major for contact to the head and a game misconduct.

In nine games this season, McAvoy has six penalties and 23 penalty minutes.
