Wisconsin’s Kerdiles suspended for season; appeal planned

Wisconsin head coach Mike Eaves announced today that Nic Kerdiles has been ruled ineligible for one season by the NCAA, and that Wisconsin will be appealing the suspension, according to beat writer Andy Baggot of the Wisconsin State Journal.

The ruling requires the freshman, picked 36th overall in 2012, to serve the suspension while enrolled in Madison.

That greatly increases the likelihood the Ducks draft pick will head to the Kelowna (B.C) Rockets of the Western Hockey League to avoid missing out a year in his development.
