The Western Collegiate Hockey Association has suspended North Dakota forward Matt Frattin for one game.

Frattin, a junior from Edmonton, won't play Thursday when North Dakota faces Minnesota-Duluth in a play-in game to make the WCHA's Final Five tournament.

Frattin received a five-minute penalty Sunday night after he knocked Minnesota's Kevin Wehrs to the ice and prompted a minor skirmish. Wehrs left the game and did not return.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
