Lokomotiv Hires U.S. Coach

RALEIGH, North Carolina — Former Carolina Hurricanes assistant Tom Rowe was hired as head coach of Lokomotiv Yaroslavl as the club rebuilds after its entire team as well as several coaches and staff were killed in a plane crash.

The 55-year-old Rowe spent his entire coaching career with the Carolina organization. He was a pro scout for the team this year after three seasons on the Hurricanes' coaching staff.

Lokomotiv's plane crashed last September outside Yaroslavl. Among the 44 people killed was former Carolina forward Josef Vasicek.
