MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Three high school hockey players have been suspended following a brawl at a playoff game between Eden Prairie and Benilde-St. Margaret's.

Three of Eden Prairie's better players will be suspended for Wednesday's section championship game against Minnetonka. Eighteen penalties were also assessed against eight players - four on each team.

Benilde-St. Margaret's coach Ken Pauly says the situation can be used as a teachable moment. Pauly says no one likes to see the game end that way.
