MADISON, Wis. – The Western Collegiate Hockey Association on Thursday announced a one-game suspension to University of North Dakota hockey player Brad Malone for his actions in the October 30 game vs. the University of Denver.

Malone ran into Denver forward Jesse Martin in the second period of Denver's 3-0 win at UND. Martin left the ice on a stretcher. Martin was flown to a Minneapolis hospital on Sunday, where he remains with three fractures of the C-2 vertebra. No surgery has been performed yet.

Malone’s suspension was determined after a review of the incident under the WCHA’s Supplementary Discipline Policy and Procedures. At the time of the incident, he was assessed a 5:00-minute major penalty for charging and a 10:00-minute game misconduct.

Malone will be required to serve this one-game suspension in his team’s next regularly scheduled game on Friday, November 5 vs the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
