GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota forward Brad Malone has been suspended for Friday’s game after a check last weekend left Denver’s Jesse Martin hospitalized with a neck injury.

The Western Collegiate Hockey Association announced the suspension before the game against Minnesota-Duluth.

Malone’s check of Denver forward Jesse Martin last Saturday led to three fractures in Martin’s neck. Officials gave Malone a 5-minute charging penalty and a game misconduct.

Martin was airlifted to a Minneapolis hospital. He has feeling in all extremities. The two players talked earlier in the week, and Pioneers coach George Gwozdecky said there are no hard feelings on the part of Martin.
