MADISON, Wis. – The men's Western Collegiate Hockey Association today announced a one-game suspension of Wisconsin hockey player Ryan Little as a result of his actions in the Dec. 8 game against Michigan Tech.

Little's suspension was determined after a review by the league office of an illegal check with 1:24 remaining in the overtime session and comes under the WCHA's Supplementary Discipline Policy and Procedures.

A senior alternate captain, Little was not penalized for the hit during the game.

Little will be required to serve the one-game suspension in Wisconsin's next regularly scheduled contest on Thursday, Dec. 13 vs Alabama-Huntsville.

Also of note, Michigan Tech forward Jujhar Khaira has yet to see supplemental discipline for his illegal take-down of Wisconsin defenseman Jake McCabe on Friday night.

UPDATE: Thanks to USCHO poster 'Innova' we have video of Little's hit. What do you think?
