LATEST | Hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg reportedly involved in bid to buy NHL team

Published May 1, 2023 at 10:20

According to Ian Mendes of The Athletic, Hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg is apart of the Neko Sparks bid to buy the Ottawa Senators.

"He's passionately involved. He's coming up with ideas. And he's legitimately excited," said a source of Snoop's involvement. "He wants this team."

A source also mentioned that Snoop Dogg is already trying to come up with ways to be involved with the franchise, should his group's bid become successful and it's possible he'll attend games at Canadian Tire Centre and join the TSN broadcasts to provide commentary when available.

Snoop Dogg isn't the only A-list celebrity to be involved in trying to purchase the Ottawa Senators as Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds is apart of a group putting together a $1 billion USD bid to buy the NHL franchise.

Neko Sparks, who is an entrepreneur based in Los Angeles, is reportedly not phased at all by Reynolds and his group's potential $1 billion USD big, which could mean we're facing a bidding war that could see the Senators be sold for more that the price mentioned above.

If so, it'll be the highest an NHL franchise has been sold for, surpassing the $900 million Fenway Sports Group purchased the Pittsburgh Penguins for back in December 2021.
