Earlier in the day, Reynolds met with Ottawa Mayor Mark Sutcliffe amid his ongoing attempts to buy the NHL team.
The star, who grew up in Vancouver, but also spent time in Vanier in Ottawa when he was younger, shared a photo of himself posing with Sutcliffe and Remington Group president, Chris Bratty.
According to CTV News Ottawa, Reynolds has joined forces with the Toronto-based real estate developers in a bid to own the Senators.
He posted the pic alongside the caption, “Ottawa friends,” and the Canadian flag emoji.

It’s thought there’s multiple groups in the running to buy the club.
Reynolds’ appearance comes after fans began to speculate about him buying the team after he sold Mint Mobile in a deal said to be worth an approximated $1.35 billion.
The actor also owns U.K. soccer club Wrexham A.F.C with Rob McElhenney.
