I'm surprised that tsn or espn are not picking this up. This is just awful.

A little surprised here too.

For anyone on Twitter who wants to-the-minute updates on this story, follow @dchesnokov. He's getting all the info.

It's been confirmed by the Finnish media that Jorma wasn't on the plane.

Lead article on TSN.

Ah, good catch. I was going directly to their hockey page which had no mention of it.

Absolutely tragic...I am speechless, in awe.

My heart goes out to the families of everyone involved.

As a Wings fan it is even harder to swallow with McCrimmon, Salei and Liv on board.

What a tragic day.

I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news of the Marshall football team plane crash. This is bad. Devastating is an understatement and my thoughts are with family and friends of the deceased. Sad day for sports.

per CNN:

An aviation agency spokesman, Sergei Izvolsky, told CNN the crash occurred around 4 p.m. (8 a.m. ET) during take-off because the plane couldn't reach a safe altitude fast enough.

The aircraft collided with the antenna of the airport beacon, fell to the ground and broke into several pieces and caught fire, Izvolsky said.
