The CHL announced late Wednesday that Sudbury Wolves forward DMITRY SOKOLOV was one of four Russian born OHL players to be named to Team Russia. Sokolov will suit up for Team Russia in Game 3 of the CIBC Canada Russia Series set to take place in North Bay on November 10th. The sophomore currently leads the Wolves in goals with 10 in 11 games and sits third in team scoring with 12 points in 11 games. Sokolov was selected by the Minnesota Wild in this past summer’s draft and is expected to have a big year for the Wolves after having shoulder surgery during the off season.
Sokolov will battle a friendly face as it was announced last week that Wolves’ teammate KYLE CAPOBIANCO will dress for Team OHL in Game 3 of the series.
