On Sunday, the 1st of February, Stepan Zakharchuk of Ak Bars received a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for an illegal hit to the head of Minsk forward Dmitry Meleshko, a foul which earned the Kazan defenseman his second three-game ban of the current season. The previous suspension, imposed on the 4th of December, was also due to the player being handed a game misconduct for checking to the head and neck area. Repeat offenses of this nature incur an automatic one-match disqualification. Zakharchuk is therefore banned for a total of four games.
