The KHL Disciplinary Committee has investigated an episode from Friday’s game in Cherepovets between Severstal and Dinamo Minsk. In the 57th minute, Minsk forward Nikita Komarov received a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for checking from behind in a hit on Cherepovets defenseman Vadim Kudako. After reviewing the evidence, the Committee upheld the referee’s punishment and imposed an additional sanction of a one-game suspension. Nikita Komarov must therefore miss Sunday’s game in Riga.
