Dmitry Chesnokov:

Lokomotiv official tells Sovetsky Sport "everyone from the main roster was on the plane + 4 players from the youth team."

I'm not going to lie, I'm in tears. This is tragic, an absolute tragedy. I've got no idea what to say.

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

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.

UNCONFIRMED

I read on HFBoards that there is a report that Ruslan Salei was NOT on board, but was already in Minsk waiting for the team's arrival. Once again, that is unconfirmed.

Correct, that's the speculation right now.

Also, Colby Armstrong's brother Riley is signed by Yaroslavl but was not on the plane as he's attending an AHL training camp.

Please don't get our hopes up... this is a tragedy any way you cut it, but if Salei was not on this plane, that will be a silver lining to a VERY dark cloud, I can't help but feel especially ill about Salei, seeing as he JUST had a baby, something about a baby having to live without their father from such a young age, just REALLY cuts like a knife to me...

I feel so horrible for all of these players families. THis is so devastating.

Perhaps related, perhaps not.

Via Detroit Red Wings on Twitter:

Nick Lidstrom is expected to make a statement to the media following the Red Wings informal skate at Joe Louis Arena this morning.

We were just there - in that very town - last summer. It is a beautiful area, with beautiful churches. I had photos on here of the area about three months ago but I don't know how to retrieve them. I can picture it, and the Volga River. Oh, how hideous. How unbelievable. I do not want to think Salei is gone too.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Tragic.

Hopefully they have fun playing the game they love with past greats up in that big hockey rink above.
