The American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) has made the difficult decision to suspend the University of Northern Colorado's men's hockey team for the upcoming 2023-2024 season.

This suspension stems from an investigation into the team's conduct, including allegations of underage drinking and hazing within the group. These concerns led to this unfortunate outcome.

In response, the team released a statement, expressing,
"Our team faced allegations from the university regarding underage drinking and hazing. We're actively appealing these allegations as we believe the punishment doesn't match our actions. Your support is greatly appreciated."




Despite the allegations, the team remains unwavering in their appeal, firmly believing that the punishment doesn't align with their behavior. They are committed to clearing their name and returning to the ice.

This incident sheds light on the persistent issues of hazing and excessive partying in hockey culture, a problem inherited from the past. The ACHA continues to prioritize creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone in the sport.

Regrettably, the Colorado Bears will miss the upcoming season, but they are diligently working towards resolving the allegations and making a comeback in the future.
