The crash of a chartered Yak-42 jet outside the western city of Yaroslavl took the lives of 37 players, coaches and staff of the local Lokomotiv Yaroslavl ice hockey club. The only other person to survive, flight crew member Alexander Sizov, was moved out of intensive care and into a general ward at Moscow’s Sklifosovsky hospital, the RIA Novosti news agency reported Sept. 12.

Unlike many other members of Lokomotiv who were European Union citizens and once played in the NHL, Galimov was a native of Yaroslavl and a product of its youth program.

His death is certain to be deeply mourned in the city, where the team’s consistently strong performance was a source of great pride.
