UND announced additional suspensions stemming from the team party last Saturday.
Sophomores Connor Gaarder, Andrew Panzarella and Stephane Pattyn have been suspended for the Oct. 20 game against Alaska Fairbanks.
UND also will suspend Brendan O’Donnell for the Oct. 19 game and it added one game to Danny Kristo’s suspension for violating athletic department policy that’s unrelated to the party.
In all, UND will be without Kristo, Corban Knight, Andrew MacWilliam, Carter Rowney and Brendan O’Donnell for the season opener. It will be without Gaarder, Panzarella, Pattyn and Kristo for the second game.
Four players are expected to be cited for underage drinking on Monday due to the party.
UND will play the opening game with just 17 skaters, assuming there are no injuries in the next month.
