Former National Hockey League star Alexander Mogilny sold a Bal Harbour penthouse to a company managed by a wealthy Latvian businessman for $6 million, The Real Deal has learned.

Mogilny and his wife Natalia closed the sale of Unit 2202 at the Bellini condo building on May 12, according to Miami-Dade County records. The county recorded the sale on Tuesday. The couple paid $5.7 million for the five-bedroom, 5,896-square-foot unit in June 2006.

The Russian-born Mogilny played for four teams over a 17-year NHL career. He also played for the Soviet Union squad during the late 1980s.

Hollywood-based Ilmax LLC is the buyer. State corporate records identify Leonid and Maxim Esterkin as the managers of Ilmax. Leonid Esterkin owns more than 33 percent of Latvia’s private Rietumu Bank. Maxim, an actor, is Leonid’s son.

Ilmax did not obtain financing for the purchase.

Located at 10225 Collins Avenue, Bellini was constructed in 2005.
