UNH men’s hockey goalie benched after arrest
Durham police received a report at 12:59 a.m. Sunday from a young woman who said she was a victim of assault, according to Deputy Chief Rene Kelley. He said when officers arrived near Mill Road in Durham, they came into contact with the woman and DeSmith.
After interviewing the woman and witnesses, the officers determined that DeSmith, 23, had assaulted her, Kelley said. DeSmith had to be physically restrained as he was being arrested, according to Kelley.
A Rochester native, DeSmith has been the Wildcats’ starting goalie since his freshman season in 2011. Last year, he posted a 20-16-0 record in net and three shutouts and helped the Wildcats reach the Hockey East Championship game, where they fell, 4-0, to UMass Lowell.
The night of his arrest, DeSmith was taken to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital in Dover to be evaluated before he was taken to Strafford County Jail. He was charged with one count of simple assault and one count of resisting arrest.
Kelley has not released the police report and said he will not because the case has not yet been adjudicated.
DeSmith is to be arraigned on Oct. 2.
