Igor Musatov banned for 1 game

In the 36th minute of Friday’s game in Prague, Game 2 of the Western Conference final between Lev and Lokomotiv, Yaroslavl forward Igor Musatov was sent to the locker room for clearly using his head to strike the face of Lev defenseman Nathan Oystrick. The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed the incident and has upheld the referee’s decision to award a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for head-butting an opponent. 

As this is his second such offense of the current season, following a game misconduct for checking to the head or neck area against Ugra in February, Musatov must serve a ban of one game.
