In the 29th minute of Friday’s game in Prague between Lev and Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, visitors’ defenseman Mikhail Pashnin received a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for checking to the head and neck area in a hit on Lev forward Jiri Sekac. The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed the incident, upheld the referee’s decision and banned Pashnin for seven games. As this is the player’s second game misconduct penalty of the season, he incurs an automatic one-game suspension. Pashnin is therefore banned for a total of 8 games.
