NCHC issues one-game suspension to North Dakota’s Bast for head contact penalty against Colorado College

The NCHC has issued a one-game suspension to North Dakota sophomore defenseman Gabe Bast.

The suspension stems from an illegal hit to the head during UND’s game against Colorado College on Friday, Jan. 11 at Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks, N.D.

During last night’s game, Bast was assessed a major penalty for contact to the head and given a game misconduct penalty at 3:01 of the third period.

Bast will be required to serve the one-game suspension during North Dakota’s series finale on Saturday, Jan. 12 against Colorado College in Grand Forks. He is eligible to return for the Fighting Hawks in their series opener at Omaha next Friday, Jan. 18.
