Tragedy in Russia - RIP Pavol Demitra

As a Canucks fan, it's been a tough off-season with the loss of both Rick Rypien #37 and now Pavol Demitra #38. :(

Moscow (CNN) -- A plane carrying Russian, German, Swedish and former NHL hockey players crashed as it took off Wednesday afternoon from Russia's Yaroslavl airport, killing at least 43 people, Russian emergency officials said.
The Yak-42 aircraft was taking players for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl -- one of Russia's leading ice hockey teams -- to Minsk, the Belarusian capital, the Russian aviation authority told CNN.
Only two of the 45 people aboard the plane, eight of them crew members, survived, a Russian Emergency Situations Ministry representative said. Eleven of the people on the aircraft were foreigners, the ministry said.
