The world of hockey was shaken when it was announced that Matvei Michkov's father passed away a couple weeks ago.

New details have emerged that show the mysterious circumstances surrounding his passing.

Intriguing Turn of Events Regarding Michkov's Father's Death in Russia

Here's what we know about his death :
"Michkov's father left his home to go to the convenience store after watching a hockey game with his son Matvei, and he never came back.

Michkov Sr. simply told his son that he was going to run errands and that he would be back in 20 minutes, but he never returned.

Even worse, young Michkov apparently received a mysterious and unclear phone call in the meantime. He couldn't understand the caller since they were too far from the device.

Michkov Sr. was eventually found lifeless in a pond."

His death was already suspicious, but now, it's even more so.
"Obviously, getting stories confirmed when they come from Russia, you'll understand that it's difficult. But it seems that his father was trying to invalidate the [KHL] contract.

His father's wish would have been to send him to North America quickly. That's why this story will be a bit 'touchy' because we don't know if the young man will have to respect the contract he allegedly signed. No one can clearly say if he really signed that contract and if it's really for 2 years, 3 years, or 4 years. That's what's a bit annoying in this case," said Martin McGuire.

Michkov's contract situation looks like Artemi Panarin's and Kirill Kaprizov's. They were forced to play in the KHL for many years instead of the NHL.
This is completely absurd. The KHL should recognize that players want to play in the NHL and let them do what they want.
But we know what the risks are if they want to break a contract with the Russian league. And after what happened, it wouldn't be surprising if no one ever tries again.
