August 28, 2019
The Rochester Grizzlies of the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) are proud to announce that Top Prospects forward and leading scorer Vladislav Sorokin has committed to play NCAA Division III hockey at the University of Wisconsin-Stout.
Sorokin, 21, played last junior season with the Grizzlies, which was his only season in the NA3HL. The 5’10/185 lbs. forward from St. Petersburg, Russia led the Grizzlies in scoring with 69 points (41 goals, 28 assists) in 41 games.
Sorokin had four hat tricks in the season, including one in three straight games. He also played in one game for the Austin Bruins (NAHL) last season. Sorokin was also selected to and played in the 2019 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament.
"I'm pretty excited. It's my first year, especially in the U.S. For me, it's going to be something new and I'm pretty excited for this," said Sorokin. "I think they [the Grizzlies] did a really good job, especially [former Grizzlies] Coach [Mignone], he helped me with school. I'm looking forward to it and I'm very happy I played here last year."
Sorokin will begin his college career with Wisconsin-Stout of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in the 2019-20 season.
