I had hoped for his recovery, but his injuries were too much. He fought valiantly.

So that means there are no survivors? Words cannot express just how much that sucks. :(

There is now only one survivor, Alexander Sizov, who was a crew member aboard the plane.  But it means there are no survivors amongst the hockey club.

Just very depressing still.  Such a shame.
