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

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
