In the 9th minute of Thursday's match in Riga between Dinamo and Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk, visiting forward Nikita Filatov was sent to the locker room for kneeing and injuring an opponent.
The KHL Disciplinary Committee has reviewed the incident and supported the referee's decision. Consequently, the major plus game misconduct penalty (5+20 minutes) remains in force, and Filatov has been fined and suspended for two games.
Moreover, as this was the player's second 20-minute penalty of the current season, he incurs a separate fine and an automatic one-game ban for repeat offending. Nikita Filatov is therefore disqualified for three games in total.
On Wednesday evening, in the 54th minute of his team's match against Admiral in Vladivostok, Sibir forward
Vyacheslav Osnovin contrived to earn a misconduct plus game misconduct penalty (10+20 minutes). This included the player's third 10-minute penalty of the 2017-18 season, and as a result, he also incurs a fine and an automatic one-match disqualification.
