Some leagues allow multiple teams to be owned by the same owner (the ECHL does as AEG also owns the Ontario Reign), but I'm guessing that the AHL does not?
AEG sold it's portion of Reading to the city IIRC a couple of years ago. (There's a thread on it in the ECHL forum; search is your friend.) They only own ECHL Ontario in that league.
