It was four years ago today that one of the most devastating hockey tragedies of all-time occurred. At approximately 4:05pm Moscow Time on September 7th 2011, Yak-Service Flight 9633 carrying both players and coaching staff of KHL’s Lokomotiv Yaroslavl ran off the runway before lifting off, struck a tower mast, caught fire and crashed a little over a mile from the airport.
All the team players and coaches -- including ex-Bruin Brad McCrimmon -- lost their lives.
