Lokomotiv Yaroslavl

Hockey Club Lokomotiv (Russian: ХК Локомотив, English: Locomotive HC), also known as Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, is a Russian professional ice hockey team based in Yaroslavl. The name of the team is derived from its owner, Russian Railways, the national railroad operator.

On September 7, 2011, a plane carrying the team to a Kontinental Hockey League game in Minsk crashed shortly after takeoff, killing all of the team's roster (plus four players from the Loko MHL junior squad) and coaching staff except for two who were not on the flight, forward Maxim Zyuzyakin and goaltending coach Jorma Valtonen. The tragedy forced Lokomotiv Yaroslavl to cancel their participation in the 2011–12 KHL season. The club instead joined the VHL, the second top ice hockey league in Russia after the KHL, in December 2011 for the remainder of the season and was automatically qualified for the VHL playoffs. Also, Lokomotiv Yaroslavl may request allowance to use more than six non-Russian players in the KHL squad.
