Radulov cleared of head-butting

10 December 2013, 16:49

In the 4th minute of Sunday’s game in Moscow between CSKA and Severstal, home forward Alexander Radulov was sent off for the remainder of the game after seemingly head-butting Cherepovets defenseman Kirill Sviyazov. On reviewing the incident, the KHL Disciplinary Committee saw no evidence of any foul play and has therefore rescinded the major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) handed to Radulov. 


The Committee also studied the 31st-minute major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) imposed on Atlant forward Nikita Soshnikov for checking to the head and neck area in a challenge on Slovan defenseman Martin Stajnoch during Monday night’s game in Bratislava. In this case, however, the Committee fully supported the referee’s decision and the penalty remains in place, although the foul was not deemed serious enough to merit any further disciplinary action.
