Ted Leonsis killing it with hilarious new Ovechkin snapfilter

Capitals

Owner of multiple sports franchises, Ted Leonsis can now add social media savyness to his impressive resume. 

Prior to the Capitals matchup with the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday, Washington was set to honor Alex Ovechkin for scoring his 1,000th career point last month against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

On Sunday the Capitals commemorated that honor with giant Ovechkin poster heads across the arena and a new snapchat geofilter that Capitals owner, Leonsis had some fun with. 

The #Ovech1Kin geofilter is available by using the snapcode on the Capitals Twitter account. It is made available from Feb. 5 to Feb 12.
