Saponaris dismissed from team; Trivino suspended

Junior Victor Saponari and sophomore Vinny Saponari have been dismissed from the Boston University men’s hockey team, and sophomore Corey Trivino will be suspended for multiple games to begin the 2010-11 season, according to a press release put out by the team yesterday.

“Over a period of time, there have been cumulative instances in which Victor and Vinny Saponari have displayed conduct unbecoming of a Boston University hockey player,” BU coach Jack Parker said in the release. “In a related issue, Trivino will be suspended for the early part of next season.”

The statement was released by the team after all parties were finally informed of the punishments this morning, according to a source with the team.
