Flip Flop by Tropp

A little over a week ago Corey Tropp's NCAA future came into doubt after he and a teammate viciously attacked Steven Kampfer of the Michigan Wolverines. Tropp was handed a heavy suspension and decided to take a step down and joined the USHL's Sioux Falls Stampede - and was immediately suspended by the league for his NCAA actions.

News has come out today that Tropp has reversed his decision and will head back to Michigan State where he will serve out his suspension and eventually rejoin the Spartans on the ice.

Here is the official release from the USHL.

Originally described as being suspended for the rest of the year, Tropp is facing a 10-game NCAA ban. The Spartans have 8 games remaining in their regular season schedule prior to the Conference playoffs. Should Michigan bow out early in the playoffs it is feasible that Tropp will have a game left to serve next year. Michigan State has won just 3 of their last 22 games so an early playoff exit is definitely realistic.

Conboy has since turned pro and has signed an AHL deal with the Hamilton Bulldogs (the farm team for the Montreal Canadiens, who own Conboy's NHL rights).

To correct your post, according to the link you provided Tropp wasn't suspended at the USHL level, but it was ruled that if he played in the USHL, he might lose his NCAA eligibility.
