The KHL Disciplinary Committee has investigated an incident that took place in the closing seconds of Monday’s game in Moscow between Dynamo and SKA Saint Petersburg. Home forward Alexei Tereshchenko needed medical treatment after a hit from Petersburg defenseman Dmitry Yudin, for which the latter immediately received a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for injuring an opponent by illegal use of the knee. 

After studying the episode, the Committee upheld the referee’s decision and ruled that the serious nature of the foul merited a two-game suspension. As this is the player’s second 20-minute penalty of the season, he also incurs an automatic one-game suspension for repeat offending. Dmitry Yudin is therefore banned for three games.
