Stop me if you've heard this all before. UND forward T.J. Oshie has been suspended for one game following an arrest early Sunday morning. Oshie annually wins the award for the most talented college hockey player to grace LetsGoDU's Bad Boyz List.
According to a Grand Forks police report, Oshie was arrested for disorderly conduct at 2:28 a.m. Sunday at 100 N. 3rd Street in Grand Forks.
New Hampshire senior forward Mike Radja also was arrested for the same offense at the same address. Radja, 22, had five points in New Hampshire's 7-4 win over UND on Saturday night.
Internet rumors point to a broken elevator and a potentially bursting bladders leading to the arrival of Grand Forks finest.
UND announced the suspension Wednesday afternoon, saying that Oshie, 21, would miss Friday's game against St. Cloud State for violating team rules. No further details were given in the release.
Oshie, a junior from Warroad, Minn., is the team's leading scorer nine goals and seven assists for 16 points in 17 games.
He also was arrested last January for being a minor in a bar. Oshie entered a guilty plea on that charge and was sentenced to one year of unsupervised probation and ordered to pay about $225 in fines and fees .
