    Could you please write a story on the history of law breaking by UND hockey players. (Of course it may require several article.) Has anybody had more citation’s thatn the guy just booted off the team, Bryn Chyzyk?

    (Honestly, that kid needs help. Maybe Hakstol shouldn’t have been so easy on him the first two times he broke the law.)
