Ottawa Senators could soon have new ownership

A bid is being prepared!



Get ready Senators fans, because it looks as though the franchise is about to have a new ownership group led by Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds and the Remington Group led by real estate mogul Christopher Bratty. The bid is worth a reported $1 billion, which would set the new record for the largest franchise sale in NHL history. 

According to a report from The Ottawa Sun:

”League sources told Postmedia Friday the Markham-based group, led by Vancouver-born actor Ryan Reynolds and real estate magnate Christopher Bratty, is prepared to bid more than $1 billion (all figures U.S.) to buy the Senators and the Canadian Tire Centre.”

As Postmedia reported Sunday, New York-based banker Galatioto Sports Partners, who has been hired by the Melnyk family to sell the team, has set May 15 as the deadline for final binding bids.”

Reynolds himself attended many home Senators games this season, and has also held meetings with the the National Capital Commission as well as Ottawa mayor Mark Sutcliffe.
