The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed episodes from two of the games played in the Championship on 20th of September.
In the final minute of the Avtomobilist vs Yugra game in Yekaterinburg, home defenseman Branislav Mezei and the visitors’ attacker Dmitry Altaryоv each received a match penalty (25 minutes) for headbutting. After studying the incident, the Committee decided to uphold the original decision.
The Committee also supported the decision of the officials in charge of the game in Kazan between Ak Bars and Traktor Chelyabinsk. In the 37th minute, Chelyabinsk forward Petri Kontiola was sent off for the rest of the game for spearing (see clip below). The Committee ruled that the major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) imposed on Kontiola was correct.
