Clinton Bourbonais no longer on Yale roster

Clinton Bourbonais, one of four seniors for Yale, is no longer a member of the hockey team, Steve Conn, Yale's director of sports publicity, said Sunday. Conn said coach Keith Allain would have no further comment on the matter at this time.

Bourbonais, a forward, had a goal and an assist while skating on Yale's top line during its exhibition game with Ontario Tech last month. But he was a healthy scratch for the team's first five games of the regular season, returning to the lineup at Quinnipiac on Nov. 9. He was taken off the roster prior to the Sacred Heart game. It is unclear whether Bourbonais quit the team or was removed by Allain.

Bourbonais had 15 goals and 42 points in 86 career games. His biggest moment came in the national championship game against Quinnipiac in April, when his redirection goal with 3.5 seconds left in the second period broke a scoreless tie and set the tone in Yale's 4-0 victory.  He assisted on the Bulldogs second goal, and was named to the Frozen Four all-tournament team.

The Dexter, Mich. native had four goals and 17 points last season; seven goals and 21 points as a sophomore. He was a biomedical engineering major and Academic All-ECAC selection.
