In the 36th minute of Friday’s game between Lokomotiv and Ugra, Yaroslavl forward Igor Musatov was sent off for the remainder of the game after aiming a deliberate blow to the head of Khanty-Mansiysk defenseman Kirill Dyakov. The KHL Disciplinary Committee has upheld the referee’s decision to award a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for causing injury by checking to the head or neck area, and has banned Musatov for four games.
