Stanley Cup or gold medal? Jon Ledecky hopes his Islanders and niece deliver both.
Along with his college roommate, Scott Malkin, he purchased the Islanders in 2014, becoming a visible and available owner, quickly establishing himself as a favorite among fans. He cheers with them in the stands, chats with them after games, even sits among them riding the train from Manhattan to Long Island some nights. “Owner Jon Ledecky joined Islanders fans’ raucous postgame celebration,” a New York Post headline read this month after the Islanders advanced to the conference finals.
