Sokolov is a skilled power forward who excels at creating scoring chances in traffic and finishing plays from all around the ice. While he has tremendously improved his stride and top speed over the last two seasons, skating is still a weakness of his. His acceleration can feel a bit slow, and he lacks the quickness and agility to arrive first on loose pucks or dodge pressure in transition. It was the reason he was passed over in the recent years and, although improved, it still is a concern for his transition to the next level. However, the Russian attacker is the most dangerous goal scorer in the QMJHL, displaying his great wrist shot, slap shot and finishing skills every game. He possesses an extremely powerful, yet very accurate shot, which allows him to beat goaltender from any distance. He finishes plays around the crease thanks to his quick hands and great scoring drive. His puck skills are impressive, especially for an attacker of his size. He utilizes his quick, silky hands to pull out spectacular dangles and flashy moves on the attack and can dance around defenders with ease. He’s quick to adapt to what’s in front of him, and he can create his own opportunities thanks to his stick-handling abilities. His decision-making is impressive, and he sees his partners around the ice with ease and makes sound passing decisions. He is not the most active defender, and he can get beat by quick attackers, but he is hard to play against despite not being overly physical.
