North Dakota Forward Bryn Chyzyk Suspended Indefinitely; Facing Theft Charges

Matt Christians

North Dakota plays Northern Michigan this weekend before the holiday break.

Grand Forks, ND -- According to a press release by the team, University of North Dakota head coach Dave Hakstol has suspended sophomore forward Bryn Chyzyk indefinitely for a violation of team rules. The Virden, Manitoba native has two goals and two assists in 13 games for UND this season. Hakstol said there is no possibility of return until at least January.

Brad Schlosman of the Grand Forks Herald tweeted out the likely reason for Chyzyk's suspension:

Chyzyk was one of the freshman players involved in last season's preseason drinking party scandal. He received a citation for underage drinking, though missed no game time for his involvement.

After a rough patch where the team went 2-6-1, North Dakota has won three consecutive games to raise its record back to the 500 mark. Hakstol's team welcomes Northern Michigan to Ralph Engelstad Arena for a pair of nonconference games this weekend.
