Former pro hockey player sells Boca manse to doctor philanthropist: $15M

Looks like this hockey player has just as much prowess in real estate as he does on the ice.

Former Canadian hockey pro Edvard Jovanovski and his wife Kristen just sold their waterfront pad in Boca Raton to a philanthropist doctor for $15 million.

The off-market deal was for 528 East Alexander Palm Road, a massive seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom estate that boasts nearly 13,000 square feet of interior space in the gated Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club.

It’s got a “beach house” feel with vibrant colors, tall windows looking out over the Intracoastal Waterway and roughly 6,000 square feet of patio space, according to a profile on the property in Florida Design.

The Jovanovskis came into the picture five years ago when they paid $5.21 million for the existing property, which already measured some 14,000 square feet, according to county records. They demolished the home a year later and began construction of their dream house.

Around the same time, Edvard Jovanovski had signed back up with the Florida Panthers after a five-year stint with the Phoenix Coyotes. He signed a four-year contract worth more than $16 million in 2011, according to the Sports Network, and announced he was retiring from the National Hockey League late last year.

The buyers for his Boca Raton manse are Steven and Rebecca Scott, a pair of philanthropists who are noted donors to schools like Duke University, the University of Florida and Wake Forest University.

Dr. Steven Scott is the retired chairman of medical investment firm Scott Holdings, and a founder of the Florida Health Plan Administrators company that was acquired by insurer Coventry Health Care for $685 million in 2007. His wife, Rebecca, got her certification as a Nurse Anesthesiologist in 1979.

Jovanovski isn’t the only hockey player getting rid of his home in South Florida. Earlier this month, former NHL bruiser Bryan Allen put his Parkland estate on the market for $1.79 million.
