TORONTO — Ryerson University is taking action against its men’s hockey team for violating the student-athlete code of conduct.
The university announced on Monday that it had suspended the team for seven days for “the consumption of alcohol” on their recent pre-season road trip to New Jersey.
Ryerson also announced that head coach Graham Wise has been suspended for four games.
“The University takes incidents of misbehaviour seriously and student-athletes and coaches are well aware of the behaviour expected of them,” Ryerson said in a release.
The team will forfeit their next two games — against the University of Ontario Institute of Technology on Thursday, and against Queen’s on Saturday — before returning to the ice on Nov. 15 against the Royal Military College of Canada.
