KHL To Rebuild Lokomotiv TeamThe Russian ice hockey team decimated by a plane crash will be rebuilt in time to take part in this year’s Kontinental Hockey League season, according to the league’s president. 
KHL president Alexander Medvedev said Thursday that each team in the league should volunteer up to three players each toward building a new Lokomotiv squad. He says that will free up between 40 and 45 players for Lokomotiv to pick.
"The 18 KHL clubs whose representatives I have managed to speak with have supported this proposal," Medvedev said in remarks to Atlant Mytischi hockey club’s press service.
Along with recruiting from other clubs, Medvedev said Lokomotiv will promote five players from its youth team.
Lokomotiv was a leading force in Russian hockey, winning the Russian League championship in 1997, 2002 and 2003. The team finished third in the KHL last season.
