On Wednesday morning it was reported by Jake Elliot that both Brampton Excelsiors player Jeff Teat and coach Dan Teat would be suspended for three games. 

This decision from the CLA comes after Tuesday’s game one of the Minto Cup Finals in which the Coquitlam Adanacs beat the Brampton Excelsiors 11-9. 

Both Jeff and Dan’s suspensions are the result of a match penalties assessed to both after game one for abuse of officials. The Minto Cup or CLA still has not made any sort of statement on the suspensions at this point in time. 

Coming into the finals Brampton was 3-0 and the favorite to win it all as they had blown past everyone in the round robin games. Jeff Teat currently leads the tournament in points with 33 (17G,16A). Teat is also the leader in the goal scoring department and second in the assistant column. Teat also plays for Cornell in the NCAA and was a Tewaaraton Nominee last season.

This is a hugs loss for Brampton as they lose their best player and their head coach for three games, which could mean the rest of the finals as it's a best of five series. Coquitlam currently leads 1-0 and the second game of the Minto Cup Finals will take place tonight at 7:00 PM MST.
