Michigan Tech senior defenseman John Scott recently found out what all the trouble he was in meant to his hockey days at college.
Scott was found guilty on two misdemeanors for the after-hours altercation he had earlier this spring. His sentencing included fines, probation and a few days in jail. After discussion, his punishment from MTU has been determined.
Scott will miss 14 games of the 2005-2006 schedule, a punishment that will undoubtebly hurt the blue line of MTU.
Scott was and has been one of the top D-men in ice time for the Huskies, and his physical presence and experience will have an effect on the defense.
Last year, Scott registered a pair of goals and four assists in 36 games.
The Huskies are slated to begin the 05-06 season with a pair of non-conference home games against the Mercyhurst Lakers on Oct. 7 and 8.
More to come as details become available.
