Tom Anselmi has left his position as president of the Ottawa Senators, the team announced Friday.

"We thank Tom for his contributions to the organization and wish him all the best in his future endeavors," the club said in a statement coinciding with the extension of general manager Pierre Dorion's contract.

Anselmi held the job for just over a year, having been officially hired by the club on Jan. 25, 2017.

He was chosen in part due to his experience overseeing the Air Canada Centre, the downtown Toronto home of the Maple Leafs and Raptors.

The Senators, of course, recently reached a deal in principle to be part of the redevelopment of LeBreton Flats, a downtown Ottawa neighborhood where the club wants to build a new arena.

Prior to working for the Senators, Anselmi served first as chief operating officer and then president of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE), and even further back, he was vice president and general manager of arena operations for Orca Bay Sports and Entertainment (now Canucks Sports & Entertainment).

There's no indication at this point as to why Anselmi left his post, or who his replacement might be.
