Lepine joined the Panthers from Elmira Jackals in the summer
The Elite League have cut the penalty to Nottingham Panthers defenceman Guillaume Lepineto to one match, just a day after announcing a four-game ban.
Lepine, 23, was penalised in the 5-0 win over Hull Stingrays for a checking to the head incident and was handed a second four-game ban of the season.
But an automatic review of the incident has seen the penalty reduced to excessive roughness.
The French-Canadian will now just miss Saturday's away game against Braehead.
Lepine was handed a four-game ban in October after an incident in the defeat against Sheffield Steelers.
