In the 35th minute of Wednesday’s match in Kazan between Ak Bars and Salavat Yulaev, visiting forward Alexander Svitov was sent to the locker room for injuring an opponent by checking to the head and neck area.

The KHL Disciplinary Committee reviewed the incident and ruled that the offense was one of boarding. As a result, the major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) remains in force, but Svitov also receives a fine and a one-game suspension.
