Remembering Lokomotiv

Two years ago today, perhaps the greatest tragedy in hockey history occurred when the plane holding KHL club Yaroslavl Lokomotiv crashed shortly after taking off from the runway. Let us remember them.

It's tough to really say anything about the Lokomotiv tragedy two years later that hasn't been said better by others, so I thought a nice way to remember those who lost their lives would be to list their names, and link to pieces focusing on the rebuilding of the hockey club from last year. Please feel free to add any new pieces that come out today as they are published in the comments.
