A little while ago, a disturbing and tragic death happened in the family of one of the top Russian prospects eligible for the 2023 draft, that, of course, is the death of Matvei Michkov‘s father Andrey, now more details have emerged.

According to the radio voice of the Montreal Canadiens Martin McGuir, the mystery surrounding Andrey's death is even more perplexing, take a look:

‘Obviously, getting stories confirmed when it comes from Russia, you will understand that it is difficult. But it seems that his father was trying to invalidate the contract. His father's desire would have been to send him to North America quickly. That's why it's going to be a little 'touchy' this story because we don't know if the young man will be obliged to respect the contract he would have signed because no one can say clearly if he really signed this contract and if it's really 2 years, 3 years, 4 years that is on that contract. That's what's a little annoying in his case.'

Michkov‘s Dad wasn't known to live outside his means and he had no known enemies, but if the above holds at least some truth, it wouldn't be unlike the Russian government to act.

Especially at this time, the last thing you want to do while Russia is trying to keep Russian hockey players in their native country is for anyone to catch wind that the Michkov family was working with their son to try and get him out.
