Actor Ryan Reynolds has an interest in purchasing the Ottawa Senators if the group eventually winds up being offered. During a look on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, Reynolds, who is from Vancouver, verified current reports that he has an interest in entering into a consortium of owners that would wind up purchasing the group.

“It’s very expensive. I need to partner with really deep pockets,” Reynolds informed Fallon in the interview. “It’s called a consortium … when you form a group together to buy an entity. It’s a fancy way of saying I need a sugar mommy or a sugar daddy.”

According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Anna and Olivia Melnyk, the children of late Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, might put the collaborate for sale in the coming months. Melnyk had actually owned the Senators considering that 2003 up till his death in March 2022 at 62 due to a fight with a concealed health problem. Following his death, Anna and Olivia Melnyk acquired the Senators franchise. They’re trying to get a brand-new arena constructed on the LeBreton Flats, which is better to the center of the city of Ottawa. If the group is offered, the Melnyks apparently wish to remain on as minority owners.

The Melnyk household has actually been checking out the possibility of offering the Senators in current weeks and bidders are currently beginning to line up. Toronto locals Jeffrey and Michael Kimel “expressed an interest” in purchasing the NHL franchise if it increases for sale.

People Magazine reported previously in November that Reynolds would wish to keep the group in Ottawa if a sale were to occur. A sale to another purchaser might possibly lead to moving.

This would not be Reynolds’ very first endeavor into owning a sports franchise. Reynolds currently owns the Welsh football club Wrexham AFC together with fellow star Rob McElhenney. The 2 acquired Wrexham AFC in February 2021.

In late 2021, Forbes approximated that the Senators franchise deserved about $525 million, ranking 28th out of the 32 NHL clubs.
