In response to a request from the Refereeing Department, the KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed two incidents from Sunday's matches in the Championship.
The first episode to come under scrutiny took place during the match in Moscow between CSKA and Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod.
Game time – 18.50
The match officials awarded a major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) against home team defenseman Nikita Nesterov for causing injury by checking to the head and neck area. After reviewing the evidence, the Committee upheld the referee's decision, and as a result, Nesterov receives a fine and a two-game ban.
The second incident curred during the match in Bratislava between Slovan and Spartak Moscow.
Game time – 21.33
Home team forward Lukas Kaspar was given a game misconduct penalty (20 minutes) for abusive and unsporting behaviour toward the match officials. Having reviewed the episode, the Committee supported the referee's decision, and consequently, Kaspar must also pay a fine and serve a two-game ban.
