KHL plane crash

Russian jet said to be carrying Lokomotiv of KHL crashes, 43 dead - ESPN

A Russian jet said to be carrying a KHL ice hockey team crashed while taking off Wednesday in western Russia, killing at least 43 people and leaving two critically injured, officials said. The Russian Emergency Situations Ministry said the Yak-42 plane crashed immediately after leaving an airport near the city of Yaroslavl, on the Volga River about 150 miles northeast of Moscow. It was carrying 45 people, including 37 passengers and eight crew, and the ministry said all but two people were killed in the crash.[...] The ministry said the plane was carrying the Lokomotiv ice hockey team from Yaroslavl. [...] Yaroslavl is a leading force in Russian hockey and finished third in the KHL last year. It's coached by Canadian Brad McCrimmon and includes several international stars in its ranks, such as Stefan Liv of Sweden and Czech Republic players Josef Vaicek and Jan Marek. [...] In June, another Russian passenger jet crashed in the northwestern city of Petrozavodsk, killing 47 people. The crash of that Tu-134 plane has been blamed on pilot error.

Pavol Demitra and Ruslan Salei are on that team.
