Sun Devil hockey freshmen forwards Logan Jenuwine and Carson Brière were dismissed from the ASU hockey program Friday after violating team rules, a team official confirmed to the Walter Cronkite Sports Network.
Jenuwine, a 21 year old, came to the program following a record-setting 60-goal, 104-point season with the Amarillo Bulls of the North American Hockey League. Until he was released from the team Friday, the Romeo, Michigan, native recorded three goals and one assist in ten appearances for the Sun Devils this season.
Brière, 20, was a redshirt freshman who came off an 89-point campaign with the NAHL's Johnstown Tomahawks in 2018-19. He is also the son of former NHL player Daniel Brière.
The news comes at a surprising time as ASU hosts the Vermont Catamounts on Friday and Saturday night at Oceanside Ice Arena after two consecutive bye-weeks.
Jenuwine, who had spent the majority of the season in a top-six forward role, was removed from the lineup ahead of Friday night's contest.
Both forwards were expected to make sizeable contributions over the course of their NCAA careers in the Sun Devil locker room.
"He's here because he can score," head coach Greg Powers said of Jenuwine at the beginning of the season. "He's a kid that is going to get an opportunity right away to be put in positions to do what he does."
With the immediate departure of Jenuwine and Brière, ASU's freshman class reduces from seven to five with Jacob Semik, Jax Murray, Jack Judson, Justin Robbins and redshirt freshman Peter Zhong still on the team's roster.
