Plane Carrying KHL Team Lokomotiv Crashes; 43 Confirmed Dead

36 reported dead on a plane crash carrying the KHL team Lokomotiv.

Roster includes former NHL players Demitra, Rachunek, Salei and Skrastins. Devils prospect Alexander Vasyunov is also on the Lokomotiv roster.

Still no word on how many players or coaches were on the charter at the time of the crash.

One reported survivor is apparently a member of the planes crew.

I was reading in the thread on the main board that one player, Alexander Galimov, survived the crash. I don't know what condition he is in though. What a horrible year for professional hockey

@dchesnokov: Lokomotiv official tells Sovetsky Sport "everyone from the main roster was on the plane + 4 players from the youth team."

Lokomotiv official said the entire team was on the plane because they were traveling for the 1st game of the season, a celebration.

Former Ranger prospect Jan Marek was also supposedly on board. I forget how he ended up with my Kings, but he was dealt a few years ago at the deadline.

It has been one awful off-season for the hockey world.

I've always feared something like this would happen.. considering how many pro sports teams there are around the world and all the constant flights.
