The Ottawa Senators have dismissed CEO Jim Little less than two months after hiring him in early January.

According to a statement, “the decision was made as a result of conduct inconsistent with the core values of the Ottawa Senators and the National Hockey League.” It is effective immediately.

Little was originally hired by the Senators to oversee the business operations side of the club, with a specific focus on marketing and community engagement. He came to the Senators from Shaw Communications and also has previously worked as an executive with Royal Bank, Bell Canada, and Bombardier.

According to a statement released Wednesday, a search for Little’s replacement has already begun and senior management will cover his duties in the interim.

No Quick Fix For The Attendance Issues In Ottawa

from Ian Mendes of TSN,

When the Ottawa Senators host the Arizona Coyotes at Canadian Tire Centre on Thursday night, there will be plenty of attendance-related jokes on social media wondering if the game is being played in a Canadian market or at the Coyotes’ home rink in Glendale, Ariz.

The Senators have plummeted to the bottom of the league in attendance during the 2019-20 campaign, averaging just over 12,000 fans per game. Thursday’s contest against the Coyotes will struggle to crack the 10,000 mark.

The sparsely attended games in Ottawa have led to the Senators being a punchline for many hockey fans who used to save those attendance-related zingers for franchises like the Coyotes, Carolina Hurricanes and Florida Panthers.

With the spectre of another poorly attended game on the horizon, the club’s new CEO, Jim Little, made his first public appearances on Wednesday, granting interviews to Bell Media properties in Ottawa.

Little – who has officially been on the job since Jan. 10 – is well aware of the stigma surrounding the franchise.

“As I’ve said to the owner, it’s a small business that has a big brand problem. It’s not that complicated. The fix is right in front of us and it’s going to be a lot of hard work to fix,” Little told TSN 1200.
