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

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
