The KHL Disciplinary Committee has investigated an episode from Monday’s game in Cherepovets between Severstal and Lokomotiv. With two minutes of regulation time remaining, home forward Artyom Kryukov was sent to the locker room following a hit which left Lokomotiv forward Pavel Kraskovsky requiring medical treatment. 

After studying the incident, the Committee upheld the referee’s decision to punish the player with a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for checking to the head and neck area, and owing to the dangerous nature of the foul, Artyom Kryukov is suspended for four games.
