Uh. Quite a few.

Oleg Tverdovsky's parents were kidnapped, Roman Lyashenko died under mysterious circumstances, Mogilny was nearly extorted by a Russian mobster, Alexei Zhitnik was beaten up in the US due to not paying his dues, etc.

There are likely a number of other smaller name players out there who simply have flown under the radar.
