The KHL Disciplinary Committee has investigated an episode from Wednesday’s game in Cherepovets between Severstal and Medvescak. In the 8th minute, Severstal defenseman Andrei Konev was sent back to the locker room after apparently using his head to strike an opponent. Having studied the incident, the Committee upholds the referee’s decision to punish the foul with a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for head-butting. As Konev had already earned a previous 20-minute penalty this season, against Dinamo Minsk on the 1st of December, he incurs an automatic one-game suspension for repeat offending.
