Capitals Owner Leonsis Congratulates Ledecky & Malkin On Islanders Deal

In 1999, Islanders new co-owner Jonathan Ledecky was part of a group that purchased the Washington Capitals.  His stake of the group gave him 24% ownership of the team.  Another member of the group was Ted Leonsis who made his career at AOL.  In 2001 Ledecky sold his 24% stake in the Capitals to Leonsis giving Leonsis 100% control of the team.

The news of Ledecky getting back into the NHL ownership game caused his former partner Leonsis to issue a short congratulatory post on his blog yesterday.
