The Globe and Mail has learned that a man calling himself Stone Coat has been buying the Toronto Maple Leafs for years.
He is the owner of the Toronto Sports and Entertainment Group and owns stakes in the Leafs and the Toronto Raptors.
The Globe reported in March that Stone Coat had purchased the Blue Jays for $1.2 billion.
Stone Coat told The Globe that he bought the Blue Jackets to help “get back into the NBA”.
According to the Globe, he said he hopes to keep the team in the NHL through 2020.
Stone Jacket also owns the Blue Devils of the American Hockey League.
The Toronto Sports Group, the parent company of The Globe, bought the Maple Leafs in 2013 for $2.5 billion.
The Maple Leafs were sold in February to a consortium led by billionaire Jeff Vinik.
The deal has been widely scrutinized for years because of allegations of corporate conflicts of interest.
It is now being probed by the Ontario Securities Commission.
Stonecoat told The Toronto Star in 2015 that he has bought the Toronto Marlies “to help get back into Canada.”
The Marlies are currently in the AHL.
Stone coat’s stake in the Blue Jets was recently purchased by a group led by former Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke.
Stone coats investment in the Jays, the Toronto Argonauts and the Red Wings was worth an estimated $1 billion at the time of the sale.
The Blue Jays franchise has been in the CFL for the last 16 years and has not had a winning season since 2007.
The team was bought by former NFL player Darrelle Revis in 2007 for $25 million.
The Leafs have had success since then, winning the 2016 Stanley Cup.
Stone jackets interest in the Toronto sports team came about after the NHL decided not to renew its television contract with Rogers.
It was the first time that Rogers had not renewed a television contract.
In the aftermath of that decision, Stone coat bought a majority stake in Rogers, with Rogers holding the rights to broadcast the NHL games.
Stone jacket also purchased a stake in Hamilton, a city that has a significant hockey fanbase.
Toronto is a Canadian city with a strong hockey fan base.
The city of Toronto has more than 150,000 members of the North American Hockey Association.
Stone, who has a net worth of $5 billion, is the son of a prominent Canadian businessman and is the founder of The Stone Coat Group, which is the largest investment management firm in the world.
Stone said that he is looking to buy an NBA franchise in 2020 and that he wants to keep it in Canada.
“I’ve been a big fan of the NBA for years and I know what a great franchise it is,” he told The Daily Beast.
“It has a long history and I want to continue that.”
Stone said he plans to make an investment in Canadian companies to create jobs.
The New York Times reported that Stone is one of several people with interests in the Raptors and Blue Jays.
“This is a very interesting and challenging time in the sports world, and it will take a lot of work to see what we can achieve in Toronto,” he said.
“The city is going to be a tremendous investment for us.”
The Blue Jackets and Raptors have both played in the Canadian Football League since 1999.
The NHL has a history of investing in sports franchises in Canada that are then sold to international investors.
The Cleveland Cavaliers were purchased by former New York Yankees owner J.B. Pritzker in 2005 for $3.1 billion.
In 2015, the New York Knicks were sold to Chinese billionaire Li Ka-shing for $315 million.
In 2019, the Los Angeles Lakers were sold for $6.8 billion.
Last year, the San Antonio Spurs sold their NBA franchise to Chinese investors for $500 million.
“We’re going to continue to invest in the league and continue to be involved in the community as well,” Stone said.
Stone owns stakes on five other Canadian sports teams, including the Toronto Wolfpack, the Montreal Maroons, the Edmonton Eskimos, the Calgary Stampeders and the Ottawa Redblacks.
