The 2009-10 season was a very disappointing one for the Boston University men’s hockey team, and yesterday, coach Jack Parker’s year got even worse when he announced he was dismissing a pair of players — brothers Vinny and Victor Saponari — and suspending another — Corey Trivino.

Parker didn’t give specifics of the misdeeds but said they were egregious enough to be dealt with harshly.

“Over a period of time, there have been cumulative instances in which Victor and Vinny Saponari have displayed conduct unbecoming of a Boston University hockey player,’’ said Parker in a statement. “In a related issue, Trivino will be suspended for the early part of next season.’’

The statement did not specify how many games Trivino, a junior next year, will miss.

A source with knowledge of the situation said the players did nothing criminally wrong but violated team rules repeatedly.
