In response to a request from the Refereeing Department, the KHL Disciplinary Committee has investigated an episode from the 40th minute of Friday’s Gagarin Cup final series Game 5 in Moscow. The incident passed unnoticed by the officials, but video footage clearly shows CSKA Geoff Platt using his stick to strike an opponent while the referee’s attention was focused on a face-off. 



The Committee found Platt guilty of slashing and imposed a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes). As this is the player’s second 20-minute penalty of the playoff campaign, he also receives an automatic one-game suspension for repeat offending.
