KHL Bad Boy defender Jeremy Yablonski of Vityaz, who was suspended until the end of the season back in November 2011, has been pardoned by the league.
The hot-headed Canadian saw his appeal satisfied after serving out a 15-game ban.
Yablonski was handed the heavy penalty after staging a brutal fight in a November match against Traktor, which was only one of many brawls he initiated since arriving in the KHL before the start of the 2011-12 season.
The avid mixed martial artist should now be available for Sunday's game at champions Salavat Yulaev, as struggling Vityaz look to end an eight-game losing streak.
Vityaz coach Andrey Nazarov promises to arrange a hero’s return for Yablonski as the Canadian is said to appear in the starting line-up.
Vityaz are currently struggling in the KHL, sitting at the bottom of the league table.
