Eugene Melnyk, the Canadian business mogul is reported to have passed on March 28, 2022, to an undisclosed illness.
He was the chairman of the National Hockey League (NHL)’s Ottawa Senators and AHL’s Belleville Senators.
Melnyk bought the Ottawa Senators NHL franchise alongside their field, then, at that point, known as the Corel Center.
Around then the group was confronting chapter 11 and a questionable future in Ottawa and was bought for the amount of US$92 million.
As of December 2020, the Ottawa Senators were recorded by Forbes magazine as the NHL’s twenty-6th most elevated valued franchise at US$450 million.
The team has partaken in some accomplishments on the ice under Melnyk’s residency, including an excursion to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2007.
During the 2018-19 season, the group set a franchise standard for unfilled seats, with participation dropping to a 22-year low.
During that season, the group drew a normal of 14,553 fans to its home games, the group’s most minimal participation figures since it started playing in its momentum field towards the finish of the 1995-96 season.
Attendance had been trending downward since 2012-13 when Senators’ home games attracted an average of 19,408 fans.
