According to the Michigan Daily, Michigan sophomore forward Cooper Marody is academically ineligible and will sit out the first semester of the 2016-17 season.
The earliest Marody, also a Philadelphia Flyers prospect, can return would be for the Great Lakes Invitational, which is set for Dec. 29-30.
“Remember he got sick last year in January, and that kinda set him back in school,” Wolverines coach Red Berenson said in the article. “[Marody’s] way ahead of himself in [credit] hours. He’s a good student and he was preparing himself for the Ross Business School, but he got affected by one particular class that really cost him. I can’t tell you any more than that except he’s ineligible.
“He’ll have to work hard and he’ll be anxious to play the second half.”
Last year, Marody recorded 10 goals and 24 points in 32 games.
He was selected by the Flyers in the sixth round (158th overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft.
