In 2012, Sokol signed Krasnoyarsk native NHL star Alexander Semin for the time of the NHL lockout. Semin decided to play for free as Sokol is his hometown team and the club he began his career with.[1] However, after just four games with Sokol, Semin signed with Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod of the top-level Kontinental Hockey League.[2]
