That is absolutely awful, I feel horrible for their loved ones, what a horrible way to go.

RIP to all the people in the plane crash.

I'd love to have a Skrastins avatar thing going for this year, anyone willing to make some. Mine isn't great.

Still can't believe it ..

This all is cursed. Had DS offered another contract him for at least a year, this would never had happened to him. The man was willing to stay in NHL... Why oh why!

I'm speechless. This offseason has been nightmarish. There were so many talented young players on that team...

RIP Skrastins. The hockey world needs more players like you, not fewer.

I don't even know what to say, and that pic makes it even worse. I can't believe it. God rest your soul, Karlis. Along with everyone else who lost their lives.

Hard to read about this...Especially since it involves Karlis. R.I.P. Always such a hard worker on the ice. And ditto to any avatars to honor Karlis


Forgot how to embed. This shows how hard he played, night in and night out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5DV9...eature=related

Sharks fan, but I just had to pop in and say that I always loved Skrastins no matter what team he played on. I sometimes feel like it's overdone to call players "warriors", but if anyone deserved that label it was Karlis. He played hard, he played smart, and you never doubted that he gave whatever team he was suited up for anything less than 100% effort every second he was on the ice.

There haven't been that many d-men cut from the same cloth as Skrastins over the past few years, and that's a shame. If everyone played as hard as Karlis did, the league would be all the better for it.

the Sharks board shares your pain, having lost promising prospect Daniil Sobchenko in the crash. A terrible time for the hockey community.

Was just about to post this as well, such a heartbreaking read. Actually got misty-eyed.

Those poor girls, and the strength of his wife to make sure they were kept happy throughout.....just so tragic...

I had the chance to meet him and get his autograph prior to the beginning of last season, he was genuinely a nice guy.

RIP buddy, and to the rest of Lokomotiv.

For those who don't check out Defending Big D on a regular basis, they're putting together a scrapbook that they hope to give to Skrastins family some time this winter. Details here: http://www.defendingbigd.com/2011/9/...ct-in-memorium
