GRAND FORKS, N.D. - University of North Dakota head men's hockey coach Dave Hakstol announced today that junior forward Matt Frattin has been dismissed due to a violation of team rules. Frattin was arrested and charged with driving under the influence on Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2009.

"This decision was made with the best interests of our program in mind, specifically the responsibilities to the program and what is expected of the members of our team," said Hakstol. "But we also care about Matt Frattin and would like to put him in position to be able to live a healthy lifestyle and resume his hockey career."

Hakstol said Frattin's status with the team may be revisited prior to 2010-11 season.
