The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed an incident from Sunday’s game in Yaroslavl between Lokomotiv and Torpedo. 


In the 19th minute of the game, home forward Jiri Novotny needed treatment following a heavy collision with visiting defenseman Stanislav Yegorshev. The hit went unpunished by the officials, but after studying the episode the Committee found the Nizhny Novgorod man guilty of causing injury by checking to the head and neck area. As a result, Stanislav Yegorshev receives a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) and a two-game suspension.
