Prokhorkin banned for 1 game
The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed the dismissal of Salavat Yulaev forward Nikolai Prokhorkin during Monday’s game against Dynamo in Moscow. The Ufa man received a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for boarding following a strong hit on Dynamo forward Ansel Galimov.
After studying all the evidence, the Committee agreed the challenge was illegal but decided that the offense was one of checking from behind. The major plus game misconduct penalty therefore remains in force, and Nikolai Prokhorkin has been suspended for one game.
