With the tragic loss of the entire Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey team today in Russia, hockey fans are reminded how small the hockey world is. While this tragedy occured half a world away, the pain still hits close to home. Several ex-NHLers as well as NHL hopeful prospects were lost in this morning’s crash but all were sons, brothers, fathers and friends.

Edmonton Oilers’ assistant coach Steve Smith remembers playing against Brad McCrimmon in the battle of Alberta, as well as playing for McCrimmon in Calgary, and spoke with inews880 today, describing McCrimmon as a “class act.”
