Conboy and Tropp Suspended for Season

This news comes via the Detroit Free Press, which reports Michigan State came to the decision today to suspend Andrew Conboy and Corey Tropp for the season for their attack on Steve Kampfer.
“What happened near the end of the game this weekend is not the way in which we want our hockey program represented,” Michigan State coach Rick Comley said in a news release. “We cannot condone their actions. We felt that we had to send a strong message that this behavior will not be tolerated.”
It's great to see that Michigan State decided to take action themselves instead of waiting on the CCHA to hand down suspensions. Now we'll see if the CCHA hands down any further suspensions or kicks either player out of the league.

According to the article, Kampfer says he expects to play on Friday, which is outstanding news.

The article also contains the highest-quality video I've seen so far:
