Ryerson University is taking action against its men's hockey team for violating the student-athlete code of conduct.

The university announced on Monday that it had suspended the team for seven days for "the consumption of alcohol" on their recent preseason road trip to New Jersey.

Ryerson also announced that head coach Graham Wise has been suspended for four games.

"The University takes incidents of misbehaviour seriously and student-athletes and coaches are well aware of the behaviour expected of them," Ryerson said in a release.

The team will forfeit their next two games — against the University of Ontario Institute of Technology on Thursday, and against Queen's on Saturday — before returning to the ice on Nov. 15 against the Royal Military College of Canada.
