The IIHF Disciplinary Panel will be conducting its first formal disciplinary review of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

The review is of an incident involving Slovenian defenceman Sabahudin Kovancevic that occurred in the Slovakia-Slovenia game on 15 February.

The incident occurred in the second period of the game at 9:20, when Kovancevic made contact with Slovakia’s Tomas Kopecky, causing Kopecky to fall to the ice. Kopecky left the game following the incident and did not return. The Panel will have a formal hearing with the player prior to Slovenia’s next game against USA, with a decision on any additional disciplinary measures to be announced after.
