The KHL Disciplinary Committee has investigated two incidents from Thursday's match in Cherepovets between Severstal and SKA Saint Petersburg, and two players have been disqualified as a result.
Game time: 57.23
After reviewing this episode, the Committee supported the referee's decision to punish SKA defenseman Anton Belov (№ 77) with a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for causing injury by checking to the head and neck area. The penalty remains in force, and Belov must also pay a fine and serve a two-game suspension.
Game time: 58.30
The Committee also upheld the referee's decision to impose a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) on Severstal forward Matej Stransky (№ 23) for slashing, and consequently, he also receives a fine and a one-game suspension.
As this is not the first time this season that Stransky has earned a game misconduct penalty, he incurs additional disciplinary sanctions – in this case, a fine and a two-game ban – for repeat offending.
Matej Stransky is therefore suspended for three games in total.
