Nikita Sergeyevich Klyukin (Russian: Никита Сергеевич Клюкин) (November 10, 1989 – September 7, 2011) was a Russian professional ice hockey centre who played for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).[1]


On September 7, 2011, Klyukin was killed in the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash, when a Yakovlev Yak-42 passenger aircraft, carrying nearly his entire Lokomotiv team, crashed just outside Yaroslavl, Russia. The team was traveling to Minsk to play their opening game of the season, with its coaching staff and prospects. Lokomotiv officials said "'everyone from the main roster was on the plane plus four players from the youth team.'"[2][3][4]
