Ryerson University is suspending the men’s hockey team for seven days for violations of the student-athlete code of conduct. The team will forfeit two games as a result.

The suspension relates to the consumption of alcohol during the team’s recent pre-season trip to New Jersey.

The Ryerson student-athlete handbook states that athletes may not consume alcohol at any time during road trips. It also states “Each student-athlete is a representative of Ryerson and is highly visible to other people, regardless of whether the team meets on or off campus. The student-athlete is responsible for his or her own behavior at formal and informal, scheduled and unscheduled events.”

The University is suspending head coach Graham Wise for four games as a result of the incident.

Part-time assistant coach Lawrence Smith is no longer employed by Ryerson University. This is a personnel matter and the University will not be providing further details.

The University takes incidents of misbehavior seriously and student-athletes and coaches are well aware of the behavior expected of them.

The men’s hockey team returns to play on Nov. 15 against RMC at the Mattamy Athletic Centre.
