UNO's Hudson Kicked Off Team
CHN Staff Report
OMAHA, Neb. Nebraska-Omaha coach Dean Blais has dismissed senior forward Alex Hudson from the team for his second violation of team rules this season.
UNO did not say what the incident was, and said in a statement that it would have "no further comment on the matter."
Hudson, 24, started the season as the captain, but had that stripped for a first violation of team rules. The 6-foot native of Corona, Calif., missed four games at the start of the season because of the resultant team-imposed suspension. Since his return, he had 4 goals and 10 points in 16 games.
In his four years with the Mavericks, Hudson had 37 goals and 82 points, with a career-high 31 points last season. His best goal-scoring year was his sophomore season when he had 14.
The move leaves UNO with just three seniors on the roster.
The Mavericks do not play again until Dec. 30 and 31 when they host Quinnipiac at the CenturyLink Center.
