Post KHL Russian team plane crash 1 survivor
This is soooooooo sad....

MOSCOW (AP) — A Russian jet carrying a local ice hockey team crashed Wednesday while taking off in western Russia, killing 36 people and leaving one critically injured, officials said.

The Russian Emergency Situations Ministry said the Yak-42 plane crashed immediately after taking off from an airport near the city of Yaroslavl, on the Volga River about 240 kilometers (150 miles) northeast of Moscow. It said one person survived the crash with grave injuries.

The ministry said the plane was carrying the Lokomotiv ice hockey team from Yaroslavl.

The team was heading to Minsk, the capital of Belarus, where it was to play Thursday against Dinamo Minsk in the opening game of the season of the Continental Hockey League. The CHL is a league of several ex-Soviet nations. ... 35014bfee7

Former Red Wing assistant coach and player Brad McCrimmon and former Red Wing defenseman Ruslan Salei died in the crash. They were both with Detroit last season. A number of other former NHL players were also on board the plane and died. A very sad day for hockey fans around the world.

Saw on the local news last night that four of these players had played with the Griffins here in GR at one time or another, sad indeed.
