Platonov’s two-match ban

25 October 2012, 23:59

In the 52nd minute of Wednesday’s game in Donetsk between Donbass and Metallurg Magnitogorsk, following a minor scuffle around the goal, visiting forward Denis Platonov shoved linesman Yury Ivanov in what appeared to be a moment of frustration, for which the Magnitogorsk captain was handed a match penalty (25 minutes).

This offense can incur an additional ban of up to five games. After studying the incident, the KHL Disciplinary Committee upheld the referee’s original decision, and has banned Platonov for two games.
