Yekaterinburg Automobilist player's carotid artery sliced in KHL hockey accident
Sport Aktualne, a Czech site, reported that Sokolov lost nearly a pint of blood after another player's skate clipped him at the start of the third period. Both men were going for the puck when Sokolov fell. Bulis attempted to leap over him, slicing his opponent's face with his skate in the process, Yahoo.com reports.
It is likely Sokolov will miss his next game against Dynamo Moscow, but he hopes to be back when they play Khanty-Mansiysk on September 20.
A similar incident occurred in 2008 when Florida Panthers player Richard Zednik's carotid artery was slashed by his teammate's skate, resulting in the loss of five pints of blood, according to Yahoo.com.
