“The Continental Hockey League has now suspended five officials on Friday in connection with the death last year of rising star Alexei Cherepanov….. An autopsy showed he suffered from a chronic condition that obstructed blood flow to the heart and other organs. Avangard’s president, general manager and one of its team doctors were suspended indefinitely from positions in the league. Another Avangard doctor was suspended for two years. Vityaz’s president was also suspended.” Source:
