Maxim Shuvalov was a player for Russian junior national ice-hockey team. He won a bronze medal at 2011 IIHF World U18 Championship.

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.'’
