In response to a request from the Refereeing Department, the KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed an episode from Saturday's match in Nizhny Novgorod between Torpedo and Metallurg Novokuznetsk, namely the 55th-minute hit by home defenseman Stanislav Yegorshev on Metallurg forward Stanislav Butuzov.

After scrutinizing the incident, the Committee upheld the referee’s decision to punish the foul with a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) for injuring an opponent by checking to the head and neck area. As a result, Stanislav Yegorshev receives a fine and a one-game suspension.
