In the 35th minute of Tuesday’s game in Ufa, Game 5 of the Eastern Conference playoff series between Salavat Yulaev and Ak Bars, home forward Sergei Soin picked up a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for illegal use of the knee. 

The KHL Disciplinary Committee reviewed the incident and supported the referee’s decision. As this is the player’s second 20-minute penalty of the current season, following his dismissal in October – also against Ak Bars - for checking to the head or neck area, Soin incurs a mandatory one-game suspension.
