Another mystery surrounding Matvei Michkov, who is currently sidelined

Matvei Michkov is one of the most promising players from the last draft. Many even placed him on par with Connor Bedard, which is quite something!

Finally selected 7th overall by the Flyers, the reasons for his slide in the draft are evident. Right from the start of the season, he was already sidelined by his club before being loaned to Sochi HC.

Since then, his performance has been phenomenal, accumulating 26 points in 29 games. It's worth noting that he is playing in the second-best league in the world and is only 18 years old.

From what we understand, the Canadiens were not willing to have no control over his development for the next three years, as Michkov has a contract in the KHL to honor. And we quickly saw some gray hairs growing on Daniel Brière's head for the same reasons.

In the last few hours, another mysterious post has surfaced, indicating that Michkov is not with his team currently for medical reasons.

What's causing a reaction is that it's not being described as an injury, but rather a medical reason. Does Michkov have a condition that was kept hidden? It's once again very mysterious, and many online are questioning what might be going on.
