Kyle Bigos Suspended

- Merrimack Athletics

Bigos won't go on Senior Night after being caught dishing out punishment in a post-game scrum.

From Hockey East Online:

Wakefield, Mass. - The Hockey East Association announced on Wednesday a one-game suspension for Merrimack College senior defenseman Kyle Bigos, after receiving his second game misconduct last Sunday, March 4 vs. UMass- Lowell, to go along with a third in the form of league supplemental discipline.

Bigos will be eligible to return to the Warriors' lineup on Saturday, March 9 at Massachusetts.

The Mack Report notes the penalty was handed out during a post-game scrum: "Bigos was assessed the penalty at the 20-minute mark of the third period on Sunday and will sit out Friday’s game against Massachusetts at Lawler Arena."

And even more detail from The Mack Report:

As the game expired, Bigos was in the middle of a pack of players. He was assessed a five-minute major for contact to the head along with a game misconduct at the 20:00 mark of the third period after making contact with Lowell’s Chad Ruhwedel.

Bigos came in at #20 in our Oilers Top 25 Under 25. Michael Parkatti talked about Bigos' propensity for taking penalties and how it might help him ascend to the NHL:

So does Bigos have the toughness of Antropov or Big Burly John Scott? Well, through 23 games played this year he's racked up 82 penalty minutes. That sounds like a decent amount, until you realize the 2nd place guy on his team has 32 PIMs. I'm not saying that having 156% more PIMs than the 2nd place guy on your team makes you Stone Cold Steve Austin, but it's obvious this guy is not a shrinking violet. He's also 4th in PIMs in the entire NCAA Div 1 (after having led the league last year) and has the highest PIM/game average of any player I can find.
