In the 35th minute of Sunday’s game in Moscow between CSKA and Dynamo, home forward Evgeny Artyukhin led with his knee in a deliberate foul on Gleb Koryagin, which left the Dynamo defenseman nursing an injured knee. The KHL Disciplinary Committee, having studied the challenge, has upheld the referee’s decision to award a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for kneeing, and has suspended Artyukhin for one game. 

As this was the player’s second 20-minute penalty of the current season, he also incurs an automatic one-game suspension for repeat offending. Evgeny Artyukhin is therefore banned for two games.
