Sacred Heart’s Nylen slapped with one-game suspension from Atlantic Hockey

Atlantic Hockey has issued a one-game suspension to Sacred Heart junior defenseman Mitch Nylen.

The suspension comes after the league reviewed the play that drew a major penalty for charging and a game misconduct on Feb. 6 against Robert Morris. Nylen made contact with the head of a Robert Morris player, which brought on the one-game suspension.

Sacred Heart is off this weekend, but Nylen will be required to serve his suspension in the Pioneers’ next game on Feb. 19 at Canisius.
