|Jayce Hawryluk has been suspended by|
the Western Hockey League
The Florida draft pick has been suspended by the Western Hockey League after being assessed a charging major and game misconduct in last night's victory over Moose Jaw.
The hit caused an upper body injury to Warriors' rookie defenceman Josh Brook.
The length of the suspension has not been determined, but Hawryluk will miss out least all three games on Brandon's Alberta road trip this weekend.
Hawryluk becomes the seventh player out of Brandon's lineup due to injury, suspension or absence.
The club will continue to have 2015 first round draft pick Caiden Daley with them this weekend, while 19-year old blueliner Dominic Thom will join the team for the weekend.
Thom played four games with Brandon early this season before being re-assigned to Junior A in mid-October.
He's currently with Alberni Valley of the BCHL, where he has two goals and five points in 13 games.
He was dealt to the Bulldogs by the AJHL's Calgary Mustangs in mid-November.
Brandon will visit Edmonton on Friday (January 1st), Red Deer on Saturday (January 2nd) and Calgary on Sunday (January 3rd).
