DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — The University of New Hampshire men’s hockey team has been penalized by the NCAA for recruiting violations.

The NCAA’s Division I Committee on Infractions announced Thursday the team has been placed on two years’ probation. A number of recruiting restrictions were among the penalties agreed to by the NCAA enforcement staff, the university and individuals involved.

The penalties resulted from nearly a thousand impermissible e-mail messages sent by an associate head coach to 30 prospective student-athletes in the fall of 2007 and the spring of 2008.
