Demitra, Vasicek, Skrastins, Salei, Rachunek... ALL those guys on that team... I'm speechless. I can't remember a more catastrophic day for hockey

Hold the phone on Ruslan Salei. He's on the roster but might not have been on the flight. God I hope that's the case

EDIT: Unfortunately Salei was on the plane, widely confirmed now. It was at first thought he was already awaiting the team in Minsk, and his name was not on the initially released list of plane passengers. A subsequently revised list included his name and Lokomotiv's GM also confirmed it

Simply stunned.

Pavs was my favorite King during his short tenure here and this breaks my heart. It breaks my heart for all of the players and their families.

Wow.

All in my thoughts and prayers.
Working on going on an internship in Russia next year and am looking forward to visiting KHL teams... Yaroslavl might very well be one of the nearest. Big fan of Russian hockey.

If there was something I could do. Would be nice if the NHL added patches to the jerseys, and I would really want one of the patches as well.
Oh, how I will treasure my signed Demitra jersey now. (Thank you so much to who got me this... you'll know if you read this).

All the best wishes to everybody somehow involved. Survivor (praying). Family. Friends. Colleagues. Fans.
All you need.

Swedish goalie Stefan Liv was also on the plane and that does it for me that was just heartbreaking news. Rip to them all and my best wishes for their families and friends.

Demitra was one of my favorite players before, during and after his Kings stinct. Was very upset when he was traded. Salei also was one of my favorites. My thoughts go out to those involved with this tragedy.
