HAMDEN — Bobcats junior goaltender Peter Vetri has been kicked off the team due to academic reasons, sources tell WQAQ.
Vetri, according to sources, did not keep his grades in line with Quinnipiac’s academic standards. According to the Quinnipiac Student Handbook, a student must maintain a 2.0 GPA to remain in good academic standing.
Members of Quinnipiac’s Sports Information Office refused comment when asked on Friday about Vetri’s dismissal from the roster. According to Bobcats coach Rand Pecknold, Vetri has been dismissed from the University.
Vetri was not listed on the line charts provided by Quinnipiac, and was not at the TD Banknorth Sports Center for Friday’s game against 15th ranked Harvard. The only goaltenders that dressed for the contest were starter Bud Fisher, and seldom-used backup Pat McGann.
“The only comment I’ll make on that is that he was dismissed because he didn’t handle his academic responsibilities,” Pecknold said.
For the season, Vetri posted a 2.09 GAA, and a .914 save percentage after transferring from UMass Lowell before last season.
