GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- The senior captain and three assistant captains of the University of North Dakota hockey team have been suspended for the season opener for violating team rules.

Athletic director Brian Faison says the suspensions of captain Andrew MacWilliam and assistant captains Corban Knight, Danny Kristo and Carter Rowney are a result of a team party last Saturday. Faison says behavior during the party was unacceptable. He did not elaborate.

Faison also announced some team discipline, including a mandatory community service program, weekly alcohol education programs and probation under which any violations by a team member could result in sanctions such as a scholarship reduction, a suspension or an expulsion.

UND opens the season on Oct. 19 against Alaska Anchorage in Fairbanks.
