Fallon, Llewellyn suspended for the rest of the season

BY MICHAEL FLOREK

Freshman forward Jacob Fallon and senior defenseman Tristin Llewellyn are no longer part of the Michigan hockey team. After practice Wednesday Red Berenson announced the suspension of the two players for "violating team expectations."

Fallon struggled to find the lineup consistently, playing in 13 of the team's 23 games, registering three points and 14 penalty minutes. Berenson made it clear that Fallon had the opportunity to return next year provided his behavior improves.

Llewellyn will miss the final half of his senior season. The Ann Arbor native played in 18 games this season making his career total 126. He will end his career with three goals and 18 points.

"I hope he stays in school and graduates," Berenson said of Llewellyn. "We'll give him that support, but we can't keep him on the team."
