27 February 2014, 18:33

In the 31st minute of Wednesday’s game in Moscow Region between Atlant and Barys, Astana forward Konstantin Pushkaryov launched a heavy and illegal hit on Atlant defenseman Alexei Petrov, which the referee punished with a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for causing injury by checking to the head and neck area. 


The KHL Disciplinary Committee has upheld the referee’s decision, and as Pushkaryov has previously been penalized twice this season for similar offenses, the Committee has suspended the Barys man for one game.
