Ryan Reynolds interested in the Senators?
Actor Ryan Reynolds has had several roles during his career, including that of the famous anti-hero “Deadpool”, but he could covet a rather different one in the near future, he who would be interested in becoming the owner of the Ottawa Senators if the team was officially for sale.
At least that’s what “PEOPLE” magazine revealed on Wednesday. Moreover, the British Columbian replied to a user, on Twitter, who told him that the Ottawa club was “for sale” and “to become the owner”, simply with the emoji of the hand on the chin, the pensive.
The 46-year-old, however, did not accept interview requests from the media.
Should this scenario ever come to fruition, Reynolds would not be completely in uncharted territory when it comes to owning a sports team, as he is co-owner of Welsh soccer club Wrexham AFC, which currently plays in the fifth league in importance in England. The actor has also created a television series, broadcast on Disney +, in which he documents the entire process of acquiring the soccer organization, along with his business partner Rob McElhenney.
The idea of selling the Ottawa Senators was recently mooted for the first time since the death of former owner Eugene Melnyk. New York-based investment bank Galatioto Sports Partners has been hired by the team’s board to handle the sale.
