    WOW what a shocker. I do recall seeing him score a few goals and it seemed his goals would come at very opportunistic moments.

    My condolences go out to all of his family, friends and loved ones.

    One of the players that were fun to watch, with his speed and knowledge of hockey.

    He will be missed.

    Our hearts go out to the family that they may get through this hard time.

    Good luck…

    That is terrible news. He left a wife and two sons.

    He sat out seven games a year ago due to fainting spells.

    I remember his great 99-00 season with the Habs on a line with Zubrus and Petrov. He also was a standout player in the 02-03 Minnesota playoff run.

    Horrible shame.

    Very sad, I spend a few weeks away from the hockey world to do school work, and some one dies.

    Sergei Zholtok was just getting good. Sad he couldn’t continue his, well not development, but improvement.

    Wife and two sons. Man, heart goes out to those who were left behind. *Takes moment of silence* Sucks he never won a cup…….. if theres a hockey league inn heaven, he’s lighting up the lamp right now.
