    A Russian jet carrying the KHL ice hockey team Lokomotiv slammed into a riverbank moments after takeoff Wednesday, killing at least 43 people and leaving two others critically injured, officials said.

    Dallas Stars defenseman Karlis Skrastins, Slovakian national team captain and ex-NHL player Pavol Demitra, Olympic gold medal-winning goaltender Stefan Liv of Sweden and the team's coach, former Detroit Red Wings assistant and NHL player Brad McCrimmon were among those confirmed to have died.

    I saw some pretty sickening video from the scene of the crash. RIP to these men and their families.
