According to Brad Schlossman of the Grand Forks Herald, Minnesota freshman forward Gabe Guertler will be suspended indefinitely. Schlossman adds that the status of the Plantation, Fla. native will be re-evaluated in November. In a release by the Minnesota Athletic Department, head coach Don Lucia says that the suspension is for "a violation of team rules."

The Hennepin County, Minnesota court records indicate the University of Minnesota Police Department arrested Guertler for DWI early Saturday morning. His initial scheduled court appearance is slated for October 11.

Guertler played the past two years with the Fargo Force in the USHL where he posted 31 goals and 20 assists this past season. Guertler was passed over in this June's NHL Draft, with many observers believing his size would prevent him from succeeding in the professional ranks.
