SLU's Flanagan suspended for hit on Yale's O'Neill

Apparently, Flanagan was indeed issued a game DQ Saturday. It was announced over the PA at Ingalls Rink as a game DQ, but not listed as such in the final postgame penalty summary. So, he's out one for that and another due to the ECAC suspension.

League Issues Suspension

ALBANY, N.Y. -- ECAC Hockey today announced that St. Lawrence senior forward Sean Flanagan has been assessed a one-game suspension, in accordance with the League’s supplemental discipline process, as the result of his actions in the St. Lawrence at Yale contest Saturday, January 22 at Ingalls Rink.

The League action was taken after review of an incident that occurred with six seconds remaining in the third period of the Saints-Bulldogs contest. Flanagan was assessed a major penalty and game disqualification, which per NCAA ice hockey rules includes an automatic one-game suspension, by the on-ice officials.

Based upon the League’s action, Flanagan is not eligible to compete in St. Lawrence’s next two games. He shall fulfill the game disqualification penalty Friday when the Saints host Princeton, and serve the League-issued suspension Saturday when the Saints face Quinnipiac.
