The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed an episode from Tuesday’s game in Helsinki between Jokerit and Admiral. In the 20th minute, the referee awarded a minor penalty (2 minutes) against Admiral forward David Booth.
After studying all the evidence related to the incident, the Committee found Booth guilty of causing injury by kneeing, and has replaced the minor penalty with a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) and a one-game suspension. As this is the player’s second major plus game misconduct penalty of the current season, he incurs an automatic one-game suspension for repeat offending. David Booth is therefore banned for 2 games.
