The Soo Greyhounds had little to say on Thursday following the three-game suspension the Ontario Hockey League handed to star centre Morgan Frost.

The 19-year-old (1999 birth year) native of Aurora, Ont., learned of his fate on Wednesday night.

“We accept and respect the league’s decision,” Hounds head coach John Dean said on Thursday morning as his team prepared for that night’s road game against the Saginaw Spirit. “So now it’s done and we move on.”

Hounds general manager Kyle Raftis was on a scouting trip and could not be reached for comment.

Frost was assessed a five-minute major and game misconduct for cross-checking in a game against the Sarnia Sting last Saturday at GFL Memorial Gardens.

He sat out Sunday’s home game against Windsor and had been awaiting word of his status following an OHL review of the incident.

Frost, who could not be reached for comment on Thursday, will also miss Friday’s home game against London.

He’ll be eligible to return on Sunday when the Hounds cap the regular season with a home game against Saginaw.
