MALMÖ – The IIHF Disciplinary Panel is conducting an official review of an incident involving Czech defenceman #27 Michal Plutnar and linesman Eduard Metalnikov.
At the conclusion of the second period, Plutnar went after Canadian forward #17 Connor McDavid when McDavid shot the puck into the Czech goal after time expired. While trying to get to McDavid, Plutnar appeared to push Metalnikov to the ice as the linesman attempted to intercede between the two players. He was assessed a roughing penalty at the time.
The Disciplinary Panel will conduct a hearing with the player later today, with a decision on whether any further action will be taken to be announced tomorrow.
