Here's one you don't hear every day. A hockey player has been fired from his pro team after he was caught on camera up to no good.

Potekhin Bogdan, 31 years old, had played in Russia's top league, the KHL, his entire career until last season. That's when he signed in the VHL, a level lower than the KHL. Two days ago, Sokol Krasnoyarsk announced they had parted ways with the veteran, despite the fact that he was one of the team's top offensive producers. At the time, no reason was given.
