By now you’ve probably heard about the plane crash involving the KHL team from Yaroslavl. There are some good things happening in media coverage and some bad things happening in media coverage. Conflicting reports, speculation, and I’m not all that interested in adding to that, nor am I interested in eulogizing. So I’m going to keep this brief, and direct you to major news organizations for more details. Puck Daddy has actually been doing a great job with the coverage so far.
A couple of former Admiral defensemen were on that plane. Karlis Skrastins spent parts of two seasons in Milwaukee from 1998-2000. And Robert Dietrich played two seasons from 2008-2010.
