New Senators owner Michael Andlauer promised to help the team win its first Stanley Cup. A day after the NHL Board of Governors approved the purchase of the Ottawa Senators, Andlauer said he would make the city proud.
According to pay per head bookie reports, the franchise announced on November 5, 2022, that selling the team had begun. It was six months after the death of Eugene Melnyk, owner of the Senators since 2003. However, Anna and Olivia Melnyk, his daughters, will each keep 10% of the team through the Melnyk Estate.
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has praised Andlauer, calling him the ideal owner.
New Senators Owner is Perfect for the Team
Those days will be spent at the Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata for the foreseeable future (at least five years). But Andlauer promised a new downtown arena would be constructed soon. He claims to have already spoken with Ottawa’s mayor, Mark Sutcliffe, who proposed using abandoned federal buildings as the new home for the Senators and the National Capital Commission, which controls the desirable land at LeBreton Flats.
By re-hiring a famous person who helped the Senators win the expansion lottery in 1992, Andlauer committed to prioritizing the team’s fans, players, and staff. According to sportsbook pay per head sources, Cyril Leeder is the new team CEO after working for the club for 25 years (1992-2017).
When it comes to hockey, Andlauer has a track record of success. He has won three titles as a team owner, one in the American Hockey League (Hamilton, 2007) and two in the Ontario Hockey League (Hamilton, 2018, 2022). The Senators’ young core makes him believe they can make a difference. Brady Tkachuk, Josh Norris, Tim Stützle, Thomas Chabot, and Jake Sanderson have led the way. Also, the Senators are on the verge of making the playoffs for the first time since 2016–17.
Andlauer, who just bought a house in Ottawa’s Westboro suburb, says hockey has always been a part of his life. He wants to attend four out of every five regular season games.
