Rest in Peace Lokomotiv Jaroslavl
I didn’t know Stefan Liv personally but yesterdays news made me cry. He was a Swedish hockey goalie, known for being outspoken and for helping Team Sweden land a bunch of medals in World Championships and Olympic Games. I remember watching an interview with him a year ago or so when he had decided to leave Sweden to compete in the russian hockey league KHL. As of April 13 2011 he joined his new team Lokomotiv Jaroslavl.
Yesterday, at 4pm local time, he and 42 of his new teammates and leaders died in a plane crash on their way to their first game of the season. Rest in Peace.
