Andlauer Group Wins Bidding War For Senators
The Ottawa Senators have finally found an owner, and it does not involve Ryan Reynolds or Snoop Dogg.
The club announced on Tuesday that a group controlled by Michael Andlauer has entered into an agreement to purchase 90% and operational control of the team, with Anna and Olivia Melnyk, the daughters of the late Eugene Melnyk, retaining 10%.
Andlauer will assume control of the Senators’ operations is a minority owner of the Montreal Canadiens and will have to divest himself of that before taking operational control of the Atlantic Division rival.
