Everyone knows what happened by now, and if you don't read this. Just a really heavy story in a crappy otherwise NHL/hockey offseason.
Some local connections in the accident include Pavol Demitra, NHL journeyman and St. Louis Blues player from 1996-2004, and Lokomotiv Yaroslavl assistant coach Igor Korolev who played 147 games with the Blues from 1992-1994. Both were lost in the crash.
