Tim Leiweke Named President/CEO Of MLSE

from Kevin Nielsen of Sportsnet,

Tim Leiweke has been appointed president and chief executive officer of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. He will officially take over the post on June 30.

Leiweke is leaving a similar posting with Anschutz Entertainment Group to take the role. AEG owns the Los Angeles Kings, and holds a stake in the Lakers.

“I’m honoured and excited to be chosen to lead MLSE, a world-class sports and entertainment organization with the major league teams, premier facilities and employee team that rank with the very best across North America and internationally,” Leiweke said in a press release. “MLSE is woven into the character of Toronto. The loyal and passionate fans of MLSE’s teams want sports championships for this great city. They want excitement on the ice, on the court, on the pitch and on the stage. And they want MLSE to be an active part of their community. I am committed to delivering for them when I begin my new role as CEO of MLSE.”

Good luck Leafs and fans! Kings fans did not call him Liar-wieke for nothing. For many years this guy good give a rat’s ass about hockey or the Kings - nor did he really understand the sport. it wasn’t until Lombardi and Hextall came in and the Kings started winning (or at least becoming competitive) that he got on the band wagon. Hopefully, the Kings got the worst of him to the benefit of the Leafs organization.
