Sad News

I just heard that nearly the entire roster of the Yaroslavl Lokomotiv was killed in a tragic plane crash. This is terrible news in a bizzare summer filled with tragedies in the world of hockey. A couple years back I covered the Lokomotiv's playoff run and it was a lot of fun, and I am truly saddened by what has happened. For any who remember, much of the coverage focused on Marcus Nilson, but he was no longer on the team at the time of the accident, and was not on the plane. I am deeply sorry for those like Pavol Demitra who were on the plane, and those who were close to them.
