In response to a request from the Refereeing Department, the KHL Disciplinary Committee has investigated an incident from the 55th minute of Tuesday’s match in Ufa between Salavat Yulaev and Admiral Vladivostok, in which visiting forward Pavel Makhanovsky (No.11) was sent to the locker room for injuring home team defenseman Ruslan Petrishchev by checking to the head and neck area.

After studying all the available evidence, the Committee upheld the referee's decision to punish the foul with a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes). As a result, Pavel Makhanovsky also receives a fine and a two-game disqualification.
