Very sad news out of the VHL today - 32-year-old defenseman Artyom Sokolov, who had just signed with Yermak Angarsk, died of heat-stroke after a outdoor run during pre-season training.  Sokolov is #14 in the above picture, playing for Beibarys Atyrau in the Kazakh league a couple of seasons ago.
Condolences to Artyom’s family and friends.
