In response to a request from the Refereeing Department, the KHL Disciplinary Committee has investigated an episode from the 17th minute of Wednesday’s match in Moscow, Game 1 of the Western Conference semi-final series between CSKA and Lokomotiv Yaroslavl.

The incident under scrutiny was a collision by the boards involving CSKA forward Gregg Scott and Yaroslavl defenseman Rushan Rafikov (№87), from which Scott received a head injury and was unable to play any further part in the game. After studying the evidence, the Committee found Rafikov guilty of causing injury to an opponent by checking to the head and neck area, and as a result, he receives a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes), a fine, and a one-game disqualification.
