Hockey East has suspended Vermont head coach Kevin Sneddon for one game as a result of inappropriate behavior directed towards game officials in the Jan. 16 home game against Providence.
“Coach Sneddon has admitted that he lost his composure on the bench,” said Hockey East commissioner Joe Bertagna in a statement. “He has accepted full responsibility for his actions and has already offered a formal apology to the on-ice officials.”
Sneddon will miss the Catamounts’ next game at Connecticut on Jan. 22. He will be able to return to the bench on Saturday evening when the Catamounts visit Massachusetts.
