New York Islanders owners Scott Malkin and Jon Ledecky have reportedly been looking to hire a new team President to oversee the club's operations.

As first reported by Arthur Staple of Newsday, Malkin and Ledecky have been meeting potential candidates since the summer.

Citing sources, Staple claims the club wants to bring in a "big name" to oversee things, and Malkin and Ledecky have already met with former Isles executive and Buffalo Sabres President of Hockey Operations Pat LaFontaine and former NHL star Brad Richards.

"They're looking for a big name," a league source told Newsday. "They've talked to a lot of people already."

Newsday also reports Malkin "has spent time" with power agent Pat Brisson, thought sources have told TFP that Brisson is not currently interested in leaving his role as a player agent and the head of CAA Hockey.

Former Montreal Canadiens COO Kevin Gilmore also met with Malkin and Ledecky, while Newsday suggests Florida Panthers President Dale Tallon could be someone of interest.

An Islanders spokesman denied the hunt for a club President to Newsday when reached by Staple.
