Yale forward Clinton Bourbonais ’14 is no longer a member of the men’s hockey team, according to the University. Associate Athletics Director Sports Publicity Steve Conn said that the University was unwilling to comment further on the situation.
Bourbonais was named to last year’s Frozen Four All-Tournament team. In the national championship game, he scored with 3.5 seconds remaining in the second period to break a scoreless tie against Quinnipiac in the 4–0 victory.
He also finished in sixth place on the team in points in each of the last two seasons, contributing four goals and 13 assists last year and seven goals and 14 assists the year before.
Bourbonais played in just one game this year, the 3–3 tie against Quinnipiac, after missing the first five games with an injury.
With Bourbonais no longer on the roster, just three seniors remain with the team: defenseman Gus Young ’14, forward Kenny Agostino ’14 and fellow forward and team captain Jesse Root ’14.
Calls to Bourbonais, Root and head coach Keith Allain ’80 were not answered.
Bourbonais is a biomedical engineering major in Timothy Dwight College.
