Two Air Force players, two RIT players suspended by Atlantic Hockey

Atlantic Hockey on Saturday announced four suspensions stemming from last night’s Air Force-RIT game – two players from each team.

The four players, who are ineligible to compete in the series finale Saturday night, are RIT’s Shawn Cameron and Caleb Cameron and Air Force’s Jonathan Kopacka and Kyle Haak.

The four suspensions come as a result of a multi-player incident that occurred at the 15:53 mark of the second period. Shawn Cameron was whistled for a five-minute major for boarding and given a game misconduct. However, after play was stopped, several players from both teams were involved in an altercation that resulted in multiple hitting after the whistle, roughing and 10-minute misconduct penalties.

After reviewing the game footage, Atlantic Hockey officials determined that the correct calls were made on the ice, but the players’ actions resulted in more discipline through the league’s supplemental discipline policy.

“The four players are receiving an extra game of discipline because of their continued involvement with each other following the whistle,” read an Atlantic Hockey news release.
