The KHL Disciplinary Committee met on the 28th of September to examine an incident which occurred in the previous evening’s game between Atlant and Avtomobilist, and which resulted in a game penalty being handed out to the Yekaterinburg team’s forward, Alexander Streltsov.

In the 40th minute of the encounter Streltsov received a major penalty and an automatic disqualification for the rest of the game (5+20 minutes) for using his elbow to strike an opponent. Having reviewed all the material connected with the incident, the Disciplinary Committee decided to overturn both punishments.
