Big Ten Hockey: Penn State's Mark Yanis suspended 1 game

USA TODAY Sports

Yanis will miss the Nittany Lions' game Saturday against Boston College at Pegula Arena.

The Big Ten Conference announced Wednesday (January 22) that Penn State sophomore defenseman Mark Yanis has been suspended for one game.

Yanis was suspended after receiving a checking from behind penalty and game misconduct with 5:23 remaining in Penn State's 3-2 loss to Michigan State on January 18. While a game misconduct does not carry an automatic suspension, the conference decided to take additional action.

Yanis has three assists in 15 games for Penn State (4-14-1, 0-6-0 Big Ten). The Grosse Point Woods, Michigan native will be ineligible to play in the Nittany Lions' game Saturday (January 25) against Boston College at Pegula Arena.
