The league issued a one-game suspension under its supplemental discipline policy, in addition to the automatic one-game suspension for a game disqualification penalty Hansen (two points, 10 games) received at the end of the Tigers’ 3-0 home win over Western Michigan on Saturday.
The suspension was assessed after video review showed Hansen swung his stick and made contact to the head/neck area of Western Michigan player Thomas Nitsche. Hansen was assessed a five-minute high-sticking major and a game disqualification penalty at the time while Nitsche was assessed a two-minute minor for roughing and a five-minute cross checking major. All penalties occurred at 20:00 of the third period.
Hansen is eligible to play in CC’s game at Nebraska-Omaha on Feb. 28.
This is the second supplementary suspension handed out by the new league. CC sophomore Jared Hanson was punished earlier this season.
