ALBANY, N.Y. -- Union hockey coach Rick Bennett has been suspended for his role in a brawl that broke out in Saturday night's Mayor's Cup Match with RPI.
Bennett received a two game suspension after fighting with RPI coach Seth Appert.
The fight, which also involved players, erupted in the closing moments of the contest.
Union announced Sunday that Assistant Coach Joe Dumais will serve as the acting Head Coach for the team's two ECAC games.
Bennett has since issued an apology.
"On behalf of Union College and the Men’s Hockey Team, I apologize for my actions and behavior after last night’s game against RPI. The administration, supporters, and loyal fans of both programs deserve and demand better from me. I’m truly sorry for the events that took place after the game,” Bennett said.
