Canisius’ Boyd’s hit on Niagara’s Teichroeb gets one-game suspension from Atlantic Hockey

Atlantic Hockey has issued a one-game suspension to Canisius freshman forward Cody Boyd, making him ineligible to play against Niagara on Jan. 16.

Boyd’s suspension was a result of the major penalty and game misconduct he received in the first period of the game Jan. 14 against Niagara. Boyd made contact with Niagara goaltender Jackson Teichroeb’s helmet, sending the goaltender to the ice and his helmet into the net.

According to an AHC-issued news release, “While both commissioner [Robert] DeGregorio and supervisor of officials Eugene Binda agreed with the call on the ice, they also determined that the hit warranted additional discipline.”
