Ryan Reynolds needs ‘sugar mommy or sugar daddy’ to buy Ottawa Senators

Ryan Reynolds knows he needs help if he wants to buy the Ottawa Senators.

Last week, the name of the actor arose between potential buyers for the NHL franchise. He appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” to address his desire to buy the team.

“I’m trying to do this,” Reynolds said. “It is very expensive. I need a partner with, you know, really deep pockets. It’s called a consortium, when you form a group together to buy an entity. It’s a fancy way of saying I need a sugar mama or sugar daddy.”

Eugene Melnyk, owner of the Senators since 2003, died last March at the age of 62.

Forbes valued the Senators at $525 million last December, and that total could be on the lower end of what the franchise ultimately sells for. Should Reynolds be unsuccessful in his bid to form a consortium to buy the Senators, he has a backup plan.

“If that doesn’t work, I’ll buy a US senator, which anyone can afford,” he joked.

The 46-year-old actor, who starred in “Van Wilder,” “Waiting…” and the X-Men films “Deadpool,” talked about growing up in Canada.

“I love Ottawa,” he said. “I grew up in Vancouver, which always has my heart, but I also grew up in Ottawa, in a little town called Vanier.”

Fallon talked about how ingrained hockey is in Canadian culture.

To this, Reynolds said, “It sounds scary, but kids come out of the womb on ice skates.”
