Colorado College freshman forward Matt Hansen was assessed a five-minute major penalty and game disqualification for a high sticking infraction at the end of Colorado College's 3-0 win over Western Michigan on Saturday night.

On Tuesday, the NCHC announced that Hansen will be suspended for an additional game as a result of the play, meaning he will have to sit out both of Colorado College's games against Denver next weekend.

Hansen was assessed his penalty for high sticking Western Michigan's Thomas Nitsche, who received a five-minute major for cross-checking, and two-minute minor for roughing on the play.
