Veteran center and former Montreal Canadien Sergei Zholtok collapsed suddenly at the end of a hockey game he was playing in Riga, Latvia today. He died of a cardiac arryhtmia.

Zholtok had 111 goals and 147 assists in his 588-game NHL career. He played two and a half seasons for the Habs, from 1998 to midway through 2000 before being traded to Edmonton, and then later to Minnesota and finally the Predators, the last NHL team he played with before the lockout.

He was only 31. That’s so incredibly sad.
