Olczyk Leaving Blackhawks Booth, to Join Kraken

Eddie Olczyk is leaving the Chicago Blackhawks after 16 years as a color commentator on their television broadcasts.


He’s expected to work Seattle Kraken games next season, joining the team his brother Ricky works for as an assistant general manager.


In a statement the team said though they are disappointed to learn that he has decided to go in another direction, Eddie will always be part of the Blackhawks family. 


Olczyk also does national broadcasts for TNT. He has become one of the leading hockey voices in the U.S. after playing more than 1,000 NHL games.
