Dick Patrick - Vice Chairman and Chief Operating Officer

Dick Patrick, along with Ted Leonsis, is one of the original partners in the group that became Monumental Sports & Entertainment. A mainstay for the Washington Capitals’ franchise for more than two decades, the owner, president and alternate governor continues to lead the club with his tireless effort and intense desire to continue a family tradition – engraving the Patrick name onto the Stanley Cup.

Patrick, who joined the Capitals prior to the 1982-83 season, guides the team on a daily basis. The former chairman of the NHL Finance Committee, Patrick has been instrumental in the Capitals’ long-term success as a franchise both on and off the ice. Patrick was a leader in the conception and development of the Kettler Capitals Iceplex, the team’s state-of-the-art training center and office building that opened in 2006 in Arlington, Va.
