Comments: I just saw a news article on yahoo I think you guys should share with Condorstown. Many different tragic deaths lately in the hockey world. My prayers go out to every single one of them.
Reply: Yes, Daniel, it has been an off-season full of sadness for the hockey world, to be sure. But the news of Yaroslavl Lokomotiv’s plane crash on Wednesday is tragedy on a scale that is incomprehensible.
I’m sure by now most of our fans have heard the news, but in case you haven’t, here is the story Daniel is speaking of. There are more updated articles, including the specifics on who has survived from the club, and further details on the accident, if you are interested in searching further. The KHL is an international league, with many players that have ties to the NHL, including their head coach, who was a Canadian, and a former coach in the NHL. An incident like this will strike a painful chord with every sports team around the world.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends and fans of the club. We cannot imagine the devastation that they are going through right now.
