agreed that KHL should set precedens and punish Artyukhin harder, especially when itīs already his 2nd suspension this season.

Artyukhin had respectfull 11/12 season, with 23pts (16+7) in 47 games, this season his productivity dropped to shambolic 2pts (1+1) in 29 games, and his average ice-time dropped as well from 16:11 to 12:16.

First time in his hockey life he probably felt as a true hockey player and then comes this seasonīs return to reality. Not gonna apologise him but understand why he can be frustrated as hell. He does himself no favour as his own actions are biting him to the ass. Suspensions, less TOI, zero productivity, turning into complete waste of a roster spot for SKA.

We can only speculate if it has something to do with him loosing his brother Sergei due to heart attack 4 months ago. Heīs 29 only, far from being finished, Iīm sure he can bounce back but imo needs rest from hockey for his own good as his frustration is getting the best of him.
