MOSCOW, October 25 (RIA Novosti)
Metallurg Magnitogorsk center Denis Platonov has been suspended for two games after pushing a referee, the KHL said Thursday.
The infraction took place in the 52nd minute of the 4-3 overtime defeat to Donbass Donetsk on Wednesday.
“After a bit of conflict at the [Donbass] net Metallurg captain Denis Platonov pushed the line referee Yuri Ivanov in a fit of emotion, for which he was punished with a game penalty,” KHL said in a statement.
According to the KHL regulations, making physical contact with a referee results in a mandatory two-game disqualification and an additional five-game ban may be imposed depending on its severity.
Another two-game ban was imposed on Dynamo Riga defenseman Mathieu Carle on Tuesday, who had committed a similar infraction in the 5-2 defeat to Metallurg Magnitogorsk on Monday.

We have witnessed the total defeat of western Ukraine, Western nationalists and the West in general, which made the unfortunate decision to support the anti-government activity. They failed to realize that the collapse of Yanukovych means the collapse of Ukrainian unity. They set fire to their own home and planted a time bomb under Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
