The Penn State men’s hockey team dismissed forward Scott Conway on Monday.

The freshman was cut for “violating team rules” by head coach Guy Gadowsky, according to a release by the university.

The release also said “Gadowsky and the program consider this matter concluded and will have no further comment.”

Conway played in 34 of the team’s 37 games, racking up 10 goals and 16 assists. He was fifth on the team in total points and fourth in both goals and assists, and finished second among Big Ten freshmen in those scoring categories.

The All-Freshman Big Ten selection, who was born in England and grew up in Florida, also had a tumultuous end to the season. In the final series of the year at Minnesota, Conway delivered a questionable hit from behind on the Golden Gophers’ Vinni Lettieri, leveling the Gopher after he scored the final goal late in the third period of a 5-0 win. Conway was given a game misconduct and suspended by the conference for the next night’s game.

His 20 penalties and 51 minutes led the team and were tied for second and third, respectively, in the Big Ten.
