The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed an incident of fisticuffs from the 30th minute of Sunday’s Western Conference semi-final Game 4 between Torpedo and CSKA. Red Army forward Igor Makarov was sent to the locker room for being the instigator of the brawl. 

After studying the episode, the Committee upheld the referee’s decision to impose a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes). This was the player’s third 20-minute penalty of the current season, following two dismissals in September for illegal use of the knee, and as a result, Makarov incurs an automatic one-game suspension for persistent offending.
