Canadian hockey player Matt Frattin dismissed from University of North Dakota

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - Canadian Matt Frattin has been dismissed from the University of North Dakota hockey team for violating team rules.

Head coach Dave Hakstol said Frattin was arrested and charged with driving under the influence on Wednesday.

Frattin had another run-in with police last month. He was given a 10-day suspended sentence, fined US$225 and put on probation for a year in an incident in which he and a former UND player were accused of throwing dinnerware, a kitchen table and a lawnmower onto a street.

Hakstol says Frattin's status with the team might be revisited before the 2010-11 season.

Frattin is a native of Edmonton and was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the fourth round in 2007.
