That same blog is reporting that there are no defibrillators in any of the KHL arenas...and it went on to say that how Zholtok died in Riga, Latvia in 2004 during lockout, no defibrillator there either.
According to comments on SportBox.ru it was Jagr's elbow. Jarg is Cherepanov's teammate. Apparently Jarg didn't see him. Afterwards Jagr was shouting "Wake up Alexei" and was in tears.

This is f-ing horrible....
Just popped over to your guys board to check in... and am stunned and saddened by this news.
It is just ghastly unlucky for the kid (who we all pray recovers), and so horribly random for Jagr. As described, those circumstances are simply cruel.
As a rival fan, I have enjoyed having fun at Jagr's expense while he was a Ranger, especially as he was your best player, but I have to admit I had tears welling in my eyes as I read through this thread (especially after the blog entrees that said Cherepanov had passed...)
All hockey fans stand as one for something like this. So we Devils fans are with you, wishing for something miraculous.
