Gennady Stanislavovich Churilov (Russian: Геннадий Станиславович Чурилов) (5 May 1987 – 7 September 2011) was a Russian professional ice hockey player. Churilov played for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).
On 7 September 2011, Churilov was killed in the 2011 Lokomotiv Yaroslavl air disaster, 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.'"
