Thurber Suspended

Andy Baggot reports that sophomore forward Matt Thurber has been suspended indefinitely.

From his post: Reasons for the punishment weren't immediately known. The policy (school's student-athlete discipline policy) calls for immediate suspension of a UW student-athlete if he or she has violated laws related to drugs, violence or gambling.

He is still a member of the team, but cannot practice or play in any games.

This isn't cool. I really like Thurber on the ice, and while the team is deep, the bench just got a little shorter at forward.

Honestly I don't care what the reason was either, but hopefully Matt pulls himself together and can find his way back on the roster at some point in the future.
