The full Alumni Game rosters for both the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers have been announced, and the Rangers roster includes the names you would expect. There are five members on the 1994 Stanley Cup team on the roster, but then there are some pretty cool names that surprised me. Darren Turcotte is on the roster, as is Dan Blackburn. Perhaps the coolest surprise to me was Mike Gartner being on the Rangers roster. He was great as a Ranger, one of my all time favorites.
Notable players missing from the Rangers are Mark Messier, Mike Richter, Wayne Gretzky, and Stephane Quintal.
I’m slightly kidding about Quintal.
