INDEPENDENCE, Missouri – Missouri Mavericks’ Head Coach Scott Hillman has been suspended one game and fined $1,000 by the Central Hockey League (CHL) for his actions in the Mavericks’ last game against the Quad City Mallards. He will miss the Mavericks’ game on Tuesday, March 19 against the Bloomington Blaze.
The CHL’s Hockey Operations Department made the ruling under Rule 39.1 which states: “Any Coach or non-playing Club personnel who throws anything on the ice during a game will be subject to a bench minor penalty and a game misconduct. In addition, that person shall receive a $1,000 fine and an automatic one-game suspension for the next game of their Team.”
Hillman threw water bottles onto the ice while disputing a call against the Quad City Mallards Sunday afternoon.
