The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed an episode from the 40th minute of Thursday’s Game 5 of the SKA – Torpedo series, in which the Petersburg men clinched a place in the Western Conference semi-finals. Nizhny Novgorod forward Nikita Dvurechensky ended his season 20 minutes earlier than his team-mates when he was sent back to the locker room for an intentional shoulder charge to the head of SKA defenseman Dinar Khafizullin. 

The Committee upheld the referee’s decision to punish Dvurechensky with a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for checking to the head and neck area, and has imposed an additional two-game suspension, to be served at the beginning of next season.
