The return of the Ottawa Senators to the National Hockey League begins with a young Bruce Firestone, a small real estate company and a yard of guts. In less than a decade Firestone, along with Ottawa Senators co-founders Cyril Leeder and Randy Sexton, would build a commercial real estate empire that became the foundation for a successful bid to bring the NHL back to Ottawa.
Find out how their bid succeeded ahead of the bid from Hamilton, recent hosts of the miraculous 1987 Canada Cup; why Tim Horton’s originally refused an affiliation with the Ottawa Senators; and is it true that Ottawa Senators founder Bruce Firestone challenged NHL Hall-of-Famer Adam Oates to a fight?
