OSU's Healey Suspended 2 Games by Big Ten
CHN Staff Report
ROSEMONT, Ill. The Big Ten has suspended Ohio State's Josh Healey for two games after reviewing an incident from Saturday's game, under the conference’s supplemental discipline process.
Against Minnesota on Saturday, Healey was given a major penalty and game misconduct for contact to the head, at 14:34 of the second period.
The suspension was two games because Healey had already been suspended earlier this season for a similar incident, following a hit in a game on Jan. 28 against Wisconsin's Grant Besse. That resulted in a one-game suspension. Healey also had a five-minute major and game misconduct against Penn State on Jan. 7, but that did not result in a suspension.
Healey was also suspended games last year by the Big Ten for major penalties.
A senior defenseman, Healey has four goals and 20 points this season, and his plus-17 rating is third on the team.
Healey is ineligible to play in Ohio State’s next two games Feb. 17-18 against Michigan State. He is eligible to return Feb. 24 against Michigan.
