Dartmouth's Eric Neiley suspended by ECAC Hockey

Dartmouth will lose its top goal scorer for the next two games.

The ECAC Hockey has announced that it has suspended Dartmouth junior forward Eric Neiley, the team's leading scorer, for two games as a result of his actions at the end of Saturday's 1-1 tie against Ivy League foe Cornell.

Neiley was given a five-minute major and game disqualification for a late hit after the final horn blew ending the overtime period. Neiley, a Warminster, Pa. native who played prep school hockey at Phillips Exeter, has 10 goals and four assists on the season. He has double the total of goals than the next closest Big Green player, Charlie Mosey, who has five.

He will miss Friday's road contest at RPI and next Friday's home game against Quinnipiac before being eligible to return Saturday, Feb. 1 versus Princeton.
