BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The University of Vermont hockey team won one out of two games this past weekend, following the suspension of four players for five games after an off-campus party at which hazing occurred.

Captains Mario Puskarich and Brendan Bradley and assistant captains Chris Muscoby and Anthony Petruzzelli were suspended a week ago.

Puskarich told WPTZ-TV (https://bit.ly/2e8BrSj ) that the team leaders who watched both games against Clarkson couldn’t be more proud of how the players competed.

Goalie Mike Santaguida said “We knew that the captains had taken a fall for the team and we really played for them this weekend and going forward we’ll play for them.”

The initiation activity consisted of first-year team members drinking beer and liquor, and they were expected to be dressed in their boxer shorts.
