SUNY Geneseo’s Men’s Hockey team has been suspended from playoff hockey this year after handing out scholarships to several ineligible Canadian players.
The NCAA infractions panel has found that too many grants designed to lure Canadians were given to student-athletes.
Geneseo’s team has 16 Canadian players. The squad is currently tied for fourth in the league and was eyeing a playoff berth.
Geneseo will finish out the regular season. The Canadians can choose to continue playing and lose the aid or quit playing and keep the aid.
The team will now remain on NCAA probation until January of 2012.
