Following a request from the Refereeing Department, the KHL Disciplinary Committee has investigated an episode which occurred ten seconds before the second interval in Thursday’s match between HC Sochi and Dinamo Riga.

After studying the incident, the Committee found HC Sochi's Ryan Garbutt guilty of injuring an opponent by checking to the head and neck area. As a result, the Canadian forward has been handed a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes), a fine, and a two-game suspension.
