Bowling Green red-shirt sophomore Dajon Mingo is academically ineligible and won’t play the rest of the season, Falcon hockey coach Chris Bergeron said Thursday.
Mingo became academically ineligible after the fall semester which ended Friday. Bergeron learned of Mingo’s status Tuesday.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder played forward and defense this season after playing forward last season.
An excellent skater who also is dangerous offensively, Mingo has three goals and eight assists in 18 games this season. He had eight goals and 14 assists in 41 games last season.

Random thoughts on the day after Christmas with family still being the best gift of all:

LOOKING AHEAD: Bowling Green's hockey team has reason to look forward to its final 16 games  of the season.
The Falcons have improved and played consistently well during the second half in each of Chris Bergeron's first three seasons as head coach.
And this season, the second-half schedule is manageable.
That doesn't guarantee success. But if BG can play well, it can overcome a disappointing first half of the season.
The Falcons believed they would contend for the Western Collegiate Hockey Association championship at the start of the season, but they're 8-8-4 overall and 6-6-2 in the league entering this weekend's games in the Three Rivers Classic.
They've played well for 40 minutes or more during most of their games, but the poor stretches during those games prevented BG from winning more. And the Falcons have battled injuries and a difficult schedule.

The Bowling Green fan base might just turn Ford Field into Perry Stadium North tonight.
The Falcons, 10-3, face Pittsburgh, 6-6, in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. Kickoff is at 6 in Detroit's Ford Field.
Over 10,000 Falcon fans are expected to attend as Bowling Green went through its ticket allotment from the bowl game.
''We are one hour and change from campus. We are a close drive to a lot of our students and alumni,'' said BG interim head coach Adam Scheier. ''I think the fan support will be important.
''I just get goose bumps talking about it ... The last time we were there (for the Mid-American Conference championship game) we experienced a very emotional event.''
There may have been some concern with students being on break, that the BG contingent might not reach five figures.

Ryan Carpenter is hoping his days of being a spectator are almost over.
The junior forward on the Bowling Green Falcon hockey team hasn’t played in a game this season because of a broken finger and a broken foot.
He broke the finger when he was hit by a shot during BG’s exhibition Oct. 5. He was set to return for BG’s series at Ferris State Nov. 15-16, but was hit by a shot in practice Nov. 13 and hasn’t skated since.
Carpenter, who was named to the Western Collegiate Hockey Association coaches preseason all-league team, led BG with 18 goals and 33 points last season.
“It’s been hard I’m not used to not playing and being a part of the everyday activities,” Carpenter said. “It’s really tested my patience.
“I’ve learned a lot. Hockey is such a big part of my life and I’m not participating, but I’ve learned that even though I’m not playing hockey, I can still be happy and joyful everyday. My happiness isn’t dictated by playing hockey.”
Carpenter is hoping to return to the lineup at Alabama-Huntsville Jan. 3-4.
“The foot feels better,” Carpenter said. “I’m looking forward to getting back out there.”
The Falcons play seventh-ranked Boston College Friday, and Robert Morris or Penn State Saturday in the Three Rivers Classic in Pittsburgh.
Carpenter is expected to skate with the team in practice both days in Pittsburgh, but won’t play in either game.
