Collapsed lung sidelines O'Connor

Freshman goalie Matt O'Connor has suffered a "spontaneous pneumothorax," a collapsed lung due to no specific injury and will be sidelined indefinitely. O'Connor had been scheduled to start Saturday's game with Vermont, but had experienced trouble breathing, according to Coach Jack Parker, and was inactive for the game. While a full recovery is expected, there is no projected return date at this time.
