On Tuesday, the NCHC issued a letter of reprimand to Miami coach Enrico Blasi for a violation of the conference’s sportsmanship and conduct policies.

The reprimand stems from unsportsmanlike actions and comments toward on-ice officials during and immediately following Miami’s game against Colorado College in Oxford, Ohio on Saturday, Jan. 26. The conduct violated the conference’s sportsmanship and conduct policies.

The NCHC policy states, in part, that the conference and its member institutions have a shared responsibility to ensure good sportsmanship is displayed at all contests.

“The NCHC expects student-athletes, coaches, officials and staff to conduct themselves in a positive manner, according to the directives and policies from the Conference and NCAA Ice Hockey Rules Committee,” according to an NCHC press release.
