In the 60th minute of Sunday’s match in Ufa, Game 3 in the Eastern Conference quarter-final playoff series between Salavat Yulaev and Ak Bars Kazan, home defenseman Maxim Goncharov (№57) was given a minor penalty (2 minutes) for roughing.

After reviewing the incident, the KHL Disciplinary Committee found the player guilty of butt-ending, for which he receives a fine and a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes).

As this is not Goncharov’s first 20-minute penalty of the 2016-17 season, he also incurs a separate fine and an automatic one-game ban.
