Following the demise, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman also provided a tribute to the late businessman.
He has said: he "cared deeply about the game, about his team and about bettering the lives of those in need, particularly underserved children, organ donation and, most recently, with his commitment to his parent's home country of Ukraine."
"On behalf of the entire National Hockey League, I extend my deepest sympathies to Eugene’s daughters, Anna and Olivia, his extended family, and all those who benefited from his generosity," he added.
