Ted Leonsis surprises Fort Dupont youth hockey players with Team USA scarves and mittens after $25k donation
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Monumental Sports & Entertainment owner Ted Leonsis attended the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony held at the Marriott Marquis on Thursday night.
Leonsis, who was joined by his wife Lynn and his son Zach, was there to accept the Wayne Gretzky International Award on behalf of Alex Ovechkin, who was traveling with the Washington Capitals on a road trip to Tampa Bay. While there, Leonsis showed off his extraordinary kindness with a massive donation to USA Hockey.
Leonsis’s donation netted Team USA scarves and mittens for every Fort Dupont youth hockey player in attendance supporting their coach Neal Henderson — one of the 2019 U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame honorees.
