Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk will have a new role in the organization… at lest for the time being. He took over the team’s CEO role on Saturday, according to Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch.

Melnyk takes over for former CEO Tom Anselmi, who recently left the team. He was with the team for just over a year.

The Senators were in the Eastern Conference Finals last season. However, it has been a struggle since then.

Melnyk frustrated fans when he claimed that he was going to relocate the franchise. He made the statement at NHL 100 Classic.

That caused Senators fans to lead a Twitter trend #MelnykOut.

While he said that, the team recently announced that they are going to redevelop LeBreton Flaps. This would be a potential location for a downtown Ottawa arena.

The Senators are seventh in the Eastern Conference with a 20-27-9 record. They also have 49 points.

The team, with their 20 wins, are the third-worst team in the league, in regards to wins. Only the Buffalo Sabres (17) and the Arizona Coyotes (16) have worse records.

The Senators recently dealt Dion Phaneuf in a blockbuster deal on Tuesday to the Los Angeles Kings. Ottawa is also attempting to deal away several other players before the trade deadline.
