Utica (WSYR-TV/WUTR-TV) – The Utica College men’s hockey team, just months removed from its first Frozen Four appearance, is one of three Pioneers programs named by the NCAA in a report on financial aid violations involving Canadian athletes.

The Utica College athletics program is facing a number of penalties, due to findings by the NCAA Division III Committee on Infractions, according to WUTR-TV.

According to the committee, Utica College failed to monitor its Canadian International Student Award program, which led to Canadian student-athletes receiving more financial aid than the general Canadian student body.

According to the NCAA, penalties in this case include two years of probation, a postseason ban for any teams with student-athletes receiving the financial aid, and increased oversight requirements.

The women's hockey team and the baseball team were also named by the NCAA.
