Atlantic Hockey suspends Mercyhurst’s Johnson one game for kneeing penalty against Niagara


Mercyhurst sophomore forward Ethan Johnson has been suspended by Atlantic Hockey for one game following a review of his major penalty at the end of the Nov. 23 game against Niagara.

Johnson was whistled for kneeing as time expired in Saturday’s 3-1 loss to the Purple Eagles. The referees assessed a major penalty and game misconduct on the play which prompted the review by the league office.

Johnson will be unavailable for Mercyhurst when the Lakers next play Friday, Nov. 29, against Robert Morris.
