The KHL Disciplinary Committee has studied an incident from Tuesday’s game in Moscow between CSKA and Salavat Yulaev. In the 19th minute, Ufa forward Sergei Zinovyev was sent off for the remainder of the game after he launched an illegal knee-to-knee challenge on CSKA defenseman Yakov Rylov, leaving the latter nursing an injury. The Committee upholds the referee’s decision to punish the foul with a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for kneeing, and has disqualified Zinovyev for four games.
