For about a month, the Ottawa Senators have been on the market. Even before the sale procedure formally began, rumors about Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds purchasing the team circulated. The NHL has now had an opportunity to meet with the prospective buyer directly.

Reynolds and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman recently spoke about the possibility of selling the Senators organization. Bettman informed the reporters that the meeting left him with a good feeling.

Ryan Reynolds

We were quite impressed by Reynolds, said Bettman. “I believe that would be wonderful for the Senators and terrific for the league if we can find out a way to have him included,” said the analyst.

Reynolds’ investment in the Senators wouldn’t be his first venture into the world of sports. In 2020, the Deadpool star and fellow actor Rob McElhenney acquired the Welsh football team Wrexham AFC. The fifth division of the English football system, the Vanarama National League, is where Wrexham now competes.

He’s incredibly intelligent, runs a variety of businesses in addition to performing, and is well-versed in both sports and marketing, according to Bettman. I believe he claimed to have well over 100 million followers across all of his sites. He is therefore very well-liked and active, and he is doing a terrific job for Wrexham.

In 1992, the Senators’ current incarnation made its NHL debut. Eugene Melnyk purchased the franchise in 2003 for $92 million. Sadly, Melnyk died in March from illness-related complications.

According to ESPN, Reynolds has a sizable social media following, which intrigues at least one NHL team. NHL franchise president: “Have you seen his social media following.” Heck, just Ryan Reynolds talking about the Senators seven times on Instagram could be worth it.
