WCHA suspends Malone

North Dakota's Brad Malone, whose hit caused three fractures in Denver center Jesse Martin's C2 vertebra, was suspended by the Western Collegiate Hockey Association for Friday's game against Minnesota Duluth, the league announced on Thursday.

You can read the release here, but there aren't many details, other than to say the suspension "was determined after a review of the incident under the WCHA's Supplementary Discipline Policy and Procedures." Martin's name is not mentioned in the release.

A few more details can be found on Grand Forks Herald writer Brad Schlossman's blog.
