The Dallas Stars honored a fallen former teammate on Saturday afternoon.
Karlis Skrastins, who played in Dallas from 2009-2011, was honored before the club’s game against the Calgary Flames at American Airlines Center. Skrastines was among those killed when a plane carrying Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the KHL crashed last September.
“Obviously it was really tough to see his family, first time for me to get to see them after the tragedy. It was pretty emotional,” Stars defenseman Stephane Robidas said. “It was a nice gesture by the Stars honoring Skratch. I think we kind of dedicated our season right from the get go (to his memory). We all know he played with heart and passion. He was the kind of guy that never complained. He was just willing to do anything for his teammates.”
