KHL's Yaroslavl Lokomotiv Team Charter Reportedly Crashes in Russia

Puck Daddy's Dimitry Chesnokov reported earlier this morning that the plane reportedly carrying Lokamotiv's team to Minsk crashed and as many as 36 of the 37 people on board were killed. The team's new coach this season is former Coyotes player and former NHL assistant coach Brad McCrimmon. In addition, his former teammate from the inaugural Coyotes squad, Igor Korolev was on the coaching staff. Here is a link to the roster listed on the team's website. Coyotes fans will likely remember former Duck and Red Wing Ruslan Salei as well as former NHL all-star Pavol Demitra.

We'll do our best to continue to update you as more information becomes available.

Update: Various media outlets are now reporting 43 people died in the crash. However, I haven't seen official confirmation of the number from the Russian government or the team.

Update: Statement from the KHL on the crash.
