The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed three episodes from the midweek games in the Championship.
In the 19th minute of Wednesday’s game in Kazan between Ak Bars and Dynamo Moscow, home forward Kirill Petrov directed a blow to the head of Moscow defenseman Filip Novak. For this offense, the Committee has imposed on Petrov a minor plus misconduct penalty (2+10 minutes).
In the 40th minute of the same game, Dynamo forward Konstantin Kasyanchuk was given a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for spearing Ak Bars defender Stepan Zakharchuk. The Disciplinary Committee has upheld the referee’s decision.
The Committee also studied an incident from Tuesday’s game in Novosibirsk between Sibir and Severstal Cherepovets, in particular the fight between visiting forward Pakhrudin Gimbatov and Sibir defenseman Kristian Kudroc.
The Committee found Gimbatov guilty of spearing, and he receives a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes).
