Atlantic Hockey has suspended Robert Morris sophomore defenseman Nolan Schaeffer for tonight’s series finale against American International.

Schaeffer was whistled for an elbowing contact to the head major and a game misconduct in the second period of Friday’s 4-3 loss to AIC.

The penalty triggered the supplemental discipline protocol and prompted a review by the league office. Upon review of the play, “it was determined that the deliberate nature of the act warranted an additional penalty,” according to a news release.

Schaeffer will be unavailable for Robert Morris for the game gainst AIC at 5:05 p.m.
