A vicious beating on the ice that left an opponent with a damaged eyeball has caused the KHL to ban former Tampa Bay Lightning wing Evgeny Artyukhin for three games, the league said Wednesday.
Artyukhin punched Dynamo Moscow defenseman Janne Jalasvaara repeatedly in the face while playing for SKA St. Petersburg on Tuesday, leaving the Finn out for a month or more.
Jalasvaara, who had earlier shoved Artyukhin in the back, was helpless during the assault, curled up on the ice after Artyukhin's first blows removed his helmet.
"You could say Janne was lucky. Everything was decided by millimeters," Dynamo's head doctor Valery Konov said on the team website, adding that the player had still sustained a tear to the membrane of his eyeball, as well as concussion.
