Three Men's Hockey Players Off Team-Mosey Dismissed For Violation of Team Rules

As the St. Cloud State Men’s Hockey team enters 2011, several players will be notably absent from the squad’s roster. News broke yesterday that Senior Defenseman Chris Hepp has left the St. Cloud State Huskies and has signed a pro contract with the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL. KVSC can now also confirm that senior forward Tony Mosey has been dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules.
Hepp made his pro debut last night and has two shots on goal in the Steelheads 6-3 win over Utah. Idaho is also the home of former Huskies Jase Weslosky and John Swanson. Hepp had played in all 20 games this year for SCSU and was in good academic standing as he was previously a WCHA All-Scholar Athlete.
Mosey had appeared in 17 games this season for SCSU with three goals and three assists. The senior had a breakout season last year scoring 14 goals and adding 26 assists for 40 points. He also scored the game-winning goal in the second overtime of SCSU’s first NCAA tournament win last year versus Northern Michigan.
In regards to if Mosey or Hepp's departures from the team had anything to do with a rumored off-ice incident while in Florida last week at the Florida College Hockey Classic, SCSU Athletic Media Relations had no comment or information.
KVSC can also confirm that Bryce Johnson has left St. Cloud State to return to juniors and play for Omaha of the USHL. Johnson has already suited up in two games for the Lancers after only appearing in three games at SCSU in his first season. Johnson's departure appears to be unrelated to any rumored incident.
