MINSK, Belarus – Vladimir Tsyplyakov, a Belarusian hockey player who spent six seasons in the NHL with the Los Angeles Kings and the Buffalo Sabres, has died. He was 50.
The Belarus Hockey Federation said Tsyplaykov died Saturday, without giving any information on the circumstances of his death.

The federation said in a statement that when Tsyplyakov turned 50 in April, “who could have imagined then that this successful, affable man, who always kept himself in good physical condition, would soon leave this world?”

Tsyplyakov, a left winger, was drafted by the Kings in the third round in 1995 and stayed in L.A. until midway through the 1999-2000 season, when he joined Buffalo.

He scored 69 goals in 331 NHL games. He only got past the first round of the playoffs once, with Buffalo in 2001.
Tsyplyakov played at two Olympics and was on the Belarus team that stunned Sweden in the quarterfinals before losing to Russia in the bronze medal game at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games.
