The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed an episode from Sunday’s Ak Bars vs. Dinamo Minsk game. In the 37th minute, Kazan defenseman Stepan Zakharchuk aimed a deliberate blow at the head of Minsk forward Dmitry Meleshko, for which he was sent off for the remainder of the game. The Committee supports the referee’s decision to punish the foul with a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for injuring an opponent by checking to the head or neck area, and has suspended Zakharchuk for three games.
