The CCHA announced today (Wednesday January 2nd) in a press release that it has suspended Michigan forward A.J. Treais and Western Michigan defenseman Matt Stewart. Both suspensions, which occurred in different Great Lakes Invitational games December 30th, are for one additional game.
Treais was assessed a five-minute major and game misconduct for contact to the head during the Wolverines' 5-2 win over rival Michigan State. He is Michigan's leading scorer this season with 18 points (10G-8A) but the team is only 2-4-1 in their last 7 games and is 8th in the CCHA. The senior captain will miss their January 8th game versus Bowling Green.
Stewart, meanwhile, was given a game disqualification in the Broncos' 4-0 loss to Michigan Tech in the GLI championship. The sophomore, who is pointless in five games this season, was ejected after being called for checking from behind with 31 seconds left in the game. He will miss both games against this weekend against Bemidji State since the game disqualification also carries a one-game suspension.
Both players are eligible to return January 11th.
