Big Ten hands Ohio State’s Healey two-game suspension, will not play in West regional

The Big Ten announced Monday that Ohio State senior defenseman Josh Healey has been suspended as a result of an incident that occurred in the game against Wisconsin on March 17 at the Big Ten tournament.

The action was taken by the conference after a review of an incident that occurred near the 17:32 mark of the third period and resulted in the player receiving a major penalty for contact to the head and a game misconduct.

Healey, who received an automatic one-game suspension for his third game misconduct of the season, has been suspended for one additional game under the conference’s supplemental discipline process.

He is ineligible to play in the NCAA West regional this coming weekend.
