On 7 September 2011, nearly the entire team perished in an airplane crash. The team's flight to a game in Minsk crashed during takeoff, killing all of the team's roster (except forward Maxim Zyuzyakin, who was not on the flight), all coaching staff (except goaltending coach Jorma Valtonen, not on the flight) and four players from the Loko 9 juniors squad of the Minor Hockey League (MHL).[1] The tragedy forced Lokomotiv Yaroslavl to cancel their participation in the 2011–12 KHL season.[2]
