In the 39th minute of Wednesday’s match in Khanty-Mansiysk between Ugra and Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod, there was a collision by the boards involving home forward Sergei Kuptsov and visiting forward Alexei Potapov. The match officials saw nothing amiss in the episode and play was allowed to continue.

Having investigated the incident, however, the KHL Disciplinary Committee found Kuptsov guilty of causing injury by checking to the head and neck area, for which he receives a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes), a fine, and a one-game suspension.
