Prospect Season Postponed

In light of the tragic crash of the plane carrying the Yaroslavl Lokomotiv club, the KHL has announced a revised schedule for the season. The opening of the season has been pushed back to 9/12, when Vasily Koshechkin and Cherepovets will face Dynamo Minsk and Nikita Kucherov and CSKA will face off against Khanty-Mansiysk. The date will also feature the emotional return of Yaroslavl to the ice against Dynamo Moscow. The league has yet to formally announce how the team's roster will be replaced, as decisions have been deferred until after the memorial service for the team.

BoltProspects would like to extend its deepest sympathies to the families and friends of all of the players and crew who lost their life in the crash. In particular, BoltProspects would like to send its sincerest condolences to former Lightning draft pick Ivan Rachunek, whose brother Karel, Yaroslavl's team captain, perished in the tragedy.
