The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed the incident which occurred at the end of the first period of Monday's match in Khanty-Mansiysk between Ugra and Kunlun Red Star, in which home-team forward Andrei Ankudinov received a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for injuring an opponent by checking to the head and neck area.

After studying the episode, the Committee supported the referee's decision. Offenses of this nature, where there is a risk of players sustaining serious injury, are subject to additional disciplinary measures, and in this case, Ankudinov has been fined and banned for four games.
