Decision of the RIHF Disciplinary Committee following the Future Cup

The Disciplinary Committee of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation (RIHF) has made a decision with regard to the incident following the conclusion of the match between Belarus U20 and Russia U18 at the Future Cup in Minsk.

After the game had ended, some of the Russian players refused to collect their awards from the tournament organisers as a sign of protest against the officiating.

These following verdicts from the RIHF's Disciplinary Committee have been confirmed:

- Russia U18 head coach Alexander Titov is banned from undertaking any activity involving Russian national teams for the next six months;

- Russia U18 players Pyotr Andreyanov (goalkeeper), Yegor Surin (forward) and Vadim Dudorov (forward) have received a three-match ban for games involving Russian national teams.

Furthermore, the players received a probation period of six months: if such a violation is repeated during this timeframe, stricter sanctions will be applied.
