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.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
