In the final minute of the Western Conference playoff Game 6 between Torpedo and Jokerit on Wednesday, Helsinki forward Jesse Joensuu was given a minor plus misconduct penalty (2+10 minutes) for tripping. As this was the player’s third 10-minute penalty of the 2015-16 campaign, he incurs an automatic one-game suspension for persistent offending. 

Wednesday’s defeat signaled Jokerit’s elimination from the Gagarin Cup, and therefore Joensuu’s suspension applies to his next game in the KHL, be it at Jokerit or any other member club.
