Yet another tragedy...
Another tragedy has struck, and this time it’s the KHL that suffers. A flight has crashed that was carrying the team for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl shortly after take-off. Various reports tally casualties at 36 and there is also word the entire team was on board. They were travelling for their first game of the season.
Familiar NHL names on the staff and roster include Karel Rachunek, Pavol Demitra, Ruslan Salei, Karlis Skrastins, Josef Vasicek, and Brad McCrimmon. Details are still coming in, but it sounds like a massive blow to the start of the KHL season.
Thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of Lokomotiv, along with any other staff and passengers that had the misfortune of being on board.
