A top ice hockey official says the Russian team decimated by a plane crash will be rebuilt in time to take part in this year's Kontinental Hockey League season.
The Russian ice hockey team whose players were killed in a plane crash will be rebuilt in time to take part in this year's Kontinental Hockey League season, according to the league leader.
He said one idea was for players' salaries to be underwritten by the teams from which they had been transferred to Lokomotiv for the duration of one season.
"This is still an unofficial decision, but it has been supported by everbody, and many are putting this idea forward themselves," Medvedev said in televised remarks.
