Galimov was the teams' lone survivor. He's currently in the hospital.

Also some sources claim that Salei wasn't on the board and was supposed to meet up with everyone in Minsk. Hope that's true.

UPDATE: Galimov passed away.

So very saddened to hear of this loss to our Russian friends at HFB, the KHL, and, of course, the families and friends of these fine young men.

So sad.

So many young people gone. But while it is sad, for fans like us it ist so much worse for the families of those who died.

I always enjoyed watching the likes of Demitra, Salei or Dietrich. Hard to grasp that they are gone.

Belarusian defender "Lokomotiv" Ruslan Salei, could not have been on board the aircraft that crashed today in Yaroslavl.

According to the "First Channel", he stayed in Minsk, and waited for his team, which was supposed to arrive in the capital of Belarus, in order play to match tomorrow with Minsk "Dynamo".

If Salei missed the plane and if I'm getting names and memory correct, 11 former NHL players were killed, presuming all the rest were on the plane:

Head coaches Brad MacCrimmon and Igor Korolev
Assistant coach Alexander Karpovtsev
G Stefan Liv
D Karlis Skrastins
D Robert Dietrich
D Karel Rachunek
F Jan Marek
F Alexander Vasyunov
F Pavol Demitra
F Josef Vasicek

And maybe 12 - not sure about Vitaly Anikeenko - I know I've heard the name.

You're right, I completely forgot about that one.

The worst I could think of was the plane crash in 1956 that killed 4 Saskatchewan Roughriders coming back from the CFL All-Star Game.

I do hope the NHL does something for this. I'd say a leaguewide memorial patch and perhaps donating some of the profits from the all-star game if a charity is set up.

My deepest condolences to families of victims, their friends, entire Lokomotiv Yaroslavl organization, city of Yaroslavl, and all KHL fans. A truly tragic and sad day for hockey world.

Dont know any Russian, but from what I saw on the Death List, Salei's birthdate was not included there, so I believe the reports that he wasnt on the plane are correct.

Pavol Demitra was a great player in his day, what an awful day for the KHL and the world of Hockey, so many great players no longer on this earth.

And I can only imagine how Salei feels right now, his teamates and close friends that he was planning to meet up with, wont ever arrive, god that sucks.

I'm not even sure what to say right now. Only thing I can is my condolences to the families of everyone on the plane and to the KHL. One of the crew members is alive still last I read.

According to my minimal knowledge of Kyrillic letters, the Name "Ruslan Salei" was mentioned, but with a wrong date of birth. I still cannot believe the horrible news that so many young men (most of them younger than me) lost their lives. My condolences go to all the loved ones of these victims.

+1 on that..

Watching ESPN, thought I'd give it a try this morning only to find out about this terrible news. Another sad day for Hockey. I haven't been too keen into the KHL but Lokomotivs were one of the teams I would hear about. Very very sad.

Tragic loss of some really sympathetic persons I was lucky to meet in the past. May all Rest In Peace!

Below is a copy of the passenger list of all people that had boarded the plane.

...The death of many good hockey men is something that is more than death. Hockey won't be the same without Yaroslavl
