University of Northern Colorado Hockey Team Suspended for 2023-2024 Season

The American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) will see one of its men's teams take a seat on the sidelines for the upcoming 2023-2024 season, and it's not by choice.

Investigation Leads to Suspension

The University of Northern Colorado's ACHA hockey team is facing a season-long suspension due to an ongoing investigation into the team's conduct. The allegations include underage drinking and hazing incidents that have prompted the university to take this drastic action.


The team expressed their stance on the matter, stating,
"Our team was investigated and faced allegations from the university regarding underage drinking and hazing. We are currently working to appeal those allegations as we feel the punishment does not correspond to our actions. We appreciate any support."


Appealing Allegations

Despite the allegations, the team remains committed to appealing the suspension, believing that the punishment does not align with their actions. The appeals process will be closely watched by both the university and ACHA officials.

Addressing Hockey Culture

The incident sheds light on a lingering issue within hockey culture, with hazing and excessive partying being remnants of the past. The ACHA is dedicated to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all players and is actively addressing such concerns.

For now, the Colorado Bears will have to sit out the upcoming season as the university's investigation and appeals process unfolds.
