Penn State Men’s Hockey Defenseman Kenny Johnson Suspended One Game By Big Ten

Penn State men’s hockey defenseman Kenny Johnson has been suspended for one game by the Big Ten, the conference announced Monday afternoon.

The Michigan native was involved in a collision with Army’s Colin Bilek as the final horn sounded during Penn State’s victory over Army Saturday night. Chaos ensued after the hit, as Bilek went straight for Johnson and punched him. Bilek was given a five-minute major and game misconduct for direct head contact, and Johnson was given a five-minute major penalty and game misconduct for clipping, which normally results in an ejection, but the game was over at that point.

The defenseman will now miss Penn State’s matchup with No. 13 Notre Dame at Pegula Ice Arena Friday night. He is having his best season with Penn State yet, with two points so far but 25 blocked shots, which ranks third on the team. With Johnson out of the lineup, the Nittany Lions will scramble to put someone in his spot.
