Canisius’ McLaughlin suspended one game by Atlantic Hockey for elbowing penalty against Army West Point

Canisius junior forward Dylan McLaughlin has been suspended one game by Atlantic Hockey for one game.

McLaughlin was whistled for an elbowing minor penalty in the third period of Canisius’ 3-2 win over Army West Point on Nov. 25.

The penalty was looked at further by Atlantic Hockey league officials Monday afternoon and it was determined that the on-ice officials did not make the right call on the ice. In reviewing the play, it was evident that McLaughlin made contact with the Army player’s head and thus, a major penalty for contact to the head should have been the call.

McLaughlin will be unavailable when Canisius plays Clarkson on Saturday, Dec. 2.
