Michigan senior goal scorer A.J. Treais will not be allowed to play on Jan. 8 due to a one-game suspension by the CCHA.

After picking up a game misconduct penalty in Sunday's third place game at the Great Lakes Invitational, Michigan hockey captain A.J. Treais was handed a one-game suspension by the CCHA on Wednesday according to an official release.

Treais leads the Wolverines with seven goals through 13 CCHA games, but picked up an obvious major penalty after making contact with the head of an opposing Michigan State player near the end of Sunday's lopsided win. In addition to Treais' suspension being handed down on Wednesday, Western Michigan defender Matt Stewart was also given a one-game ban for his actions during the Great Lakes Invitational.

Eligible to return for Michigan's home series with Alaska on Jan. 11 and 12, the 21-year-old Treais will look to continue his stellar senior season over the final two months. The versatile forward is also tied for second on the team with eight assists in 19 total games, but faces a tough task at the moment with his Wolverines stuck at just 4-7-2 in CCHA play.
