RIP Lokomotiv Yaroslavl Hockey Team


The Blackhawks' statement on the plane crash that killed at least 43, including former Blackhawks players Igor Korolev and Alexander Karpovtsev:

“We stand together with the entire KHL, NHL and hockey world in mourning today’s tragic news concerning the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey team. The tragedy affects the Chicago Blackhawks family directly as we mourn the losses of Alexander Karpovtsev and Igor Korolev, two players who spent time with our organization and that our fans know well. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl organization.” (source)
