The KHL Disciplinary Committee has been asked to review a challenge by Avtomobilist forward Alexander Nesterov on Lada defenseman Karol Sloboda during Wednesday’s game in Togliatti. The Committee decided the hit, which left Sloboda nursing a cut to the face, was indeed a foul and has imposed on Nesterov a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) and a one-game ban for checking to the head or neck area. As this is the player’s second 20-minute penalty of the season, following a game misconduct for boarding in late October, he incurs an automatic one-game ban for repeat offending. Alexander Nesterov is therefore suspended for two games.
