Jagr part of suspended KHL game
A series of fights between Vityaz Chekhov and Avangard Omsk resulted in 691 penalty minutes against more than 30 players. The game had to be suspended because neither team had enough players to continue.
The KHL league commission plans to look at video and hear from team officials, referees and observers to decide further discipline. The game was stopped tied at 0-0 with 56 minutes 21 seconds to play.
The fighting started at 3:27. when Vityaz's Brendan Sugden started in with Avangard's Alexander Svitov. Soon the rest of the players on the ice, including Jagr, dropped their gloves and started fighting.
Order was restored but at 3:34 more fighting broke out, and eight more players, four from each side, were penalized.
There was another free-for-all at 3:37, involving players on the ice and seven more in the penalty boxes, including Jagr. That left three Avangard skaters on the ice and one on the bench, and three Vityaz skaters on the ice and three on the bench.
The team ran out of players at 3:39, when Avangard's Anton Babchuk and Jakub Klepisch were penalized for leaving the bench and Vityaz's Viktor Bobrov and Rustam Bakhriddinov took 10-minute misconducts.
