SAULT STE. MARIE - Lake Superior State freshman forward Matt Martello has been dismissed from the Laker hockey team because of poor academic progress, LSSU coach Jim Roque announced late Wednesday.
Martello, a 6-0, 205-pounder from North York, Ont., was the team's second-leading scorer among freshmen with two goals and seven assists. He played in 18 of 20 games during the first half of the LSSU season.
The Lakers are 12-6-2 overall and play host to Nebraska-Omaha at 7:35 p.m. Friday and 7:05 p.m. Saturday at Taffy Abel Arena.
