The Dalhousie women’s hockey team met with the president of the university today, but the players are still suspended, and they’re still not talking about why.
The university suspended all but five players on the team in January following a six-week investigation into a hazing incident that took place at a house party in September.
At the meeting this morning they asked Dal president Tom Traves to reconsider their suspension.
Afterwards the players left quickly and wouldn’t talk to waiting media.
Dal spokesperson Charles Crosby talked to us about the meeting but didn’t seem to offer much hope to the players. Nor would he get into details.
The Dalhousie hazing policy
says coaches must ensure compliance with the rules. The women’s coach, Sean Fraser, declined a phone interview.

Update January 16: the decision to suspend the players stands.
Statement from Dalhousie University:
“On January 14 Dalhousie President Dr. Tom Traves met with the members of the University Varsity Women’s Hockey team to address concerns raised by them. Following discussion at the meeting, Dr. Traves agreed to further consider their comments. Dr. Traves has now confirmed that the decision to suspend the players, other than the first year players, stands.”
