Among the well-known former NHLers believed to be on the aircraft were Pavol Demitra, who was a close friend of the Rangers’ Marian Gaborik, former Ranger Karel Rachunek, and possibly assistant coach Alexander Karpovtsev, who was a member of the Rangers’ 1994 Stanley Cup team.

Brad McCrimmon, the former Flyers defenseman, was the team’s head coach and also believed to have perished in the crash, according to reports.
