Lokomotiv official said the entire team was on the plane because they were traveling for the 1st game of the season, a celebration.

Edit: This has not been reliably confirmed but several mainstream media reporters have tweeted it.
Edit (10:51 AM): Belorussian news agencies now confirming that Ruslan Salei was on board.

Edit: Pavel Lysenkov tweets that Galimov died in the hospital but that Salei is alive in Minsk.
Edit (11:06 AM): Pavol Demitra confirmed deceased by his agent. He and Liv are the only true confirmations at this time, I think.

This is heartbreaking ): And probably one of the saddest off seasons, ever.
Truly heartbreaking, and yes, a very sad off-season...my heart goes out to their families, to the inconsolable young wives and children....
