Michigan State’s Hirose gets one-game suspension from Big Ten for kneeing infraction

The Big Ten announced Saturday that Michigan State freshman forward Taro Hirose has been suspended for one game as a result of an incident that occurred in the game against Wisconsin on Friday, Feb. 3.

The action was taken by the conference after a review of an incident that took place near the 13:47 mark of the first period and resulted in Hirose receiving a major penalty for kneeing and a game misconduct.

Hirose is ineligible to play in Michigan State’s next game on Saturday, Feb. 4, against Wisconsin.
