Atlantic Hockey Suspends Robert Morris' Elias Ghantous One Game

Matt Christians

Robert Morris freshman defenseman Elias Ghantous has received a one-game supplemental suspension from Atlantic Hockey stemming from a hit in last Saturday's 1-0 exhibition loss to Ryerson.

Ghantous was assessed a 5-minute major penalty and game misconduct for contact-to-the-head at 6:17 of the third period in Saturday's game. The freshman defenseman has a reputation of being a heavy-hitter, but after reviewing the tape, it appears Atlantic Hockey though he went a bit overboard here.

Robert Morris is scheduled to host a two-game series against Lake Superior this coming weekend, meaning Ghantous will have to sit out the Friday night game.
