CHN Staff Report
BOSTON Hockey East announced on Tuesday that Boston University defenseman Garrett Noonan will serve an additional one-game suspension following his game disqualification for a spearing major in Saturday's, 4-3, loss to Massachusetts-Lowell.
Noonan, a junior, received the major after spearing UML goaltender Doug Carr at 14 minutes, 13 seconds of the third period. The game disqualification comes with an automatic one-game suspension.
