Following a request from the Refereeing Department, the KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed an incident from the 35th minute of Thursday's match in Kazan between Ak Bars and Kunlun Red Star. In the episode in question, home defenseman Albert Yarullin (No.33) sustained an injury in a collision with visiting forward Brandon Yip (No.18). The Committee ruled that Yip was guilty of illegal use of the knee, and as a result, the player receives a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes), a fine, and a two-game suspension.
