Olczyk leaves Blackhawks broadcast, set to join Kraken

CHICAGO (AP) — Eddie Olczyk is leaving the Chicago Blackhawks after 16 years as a color commentator on their television shows.

He is expected to work at the Kraken Games in Seattle next season, joining the team his brother Ricky works for as assistant general manager.

“For 16 seasons, we’ve been fortunate to have legendary broadcaster Eddie Olczyk bringing Chicago Blackhawks hockey into the homes of our fans,” the team said in a statement Monday. “We will miss him as much as our fans. Although today we are disappointed to learn that he has decided to take a different direction, Eddie will always be part of the Blackhawks family. We appreciate his many contributions and wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Olczyk also does national broadcasts for TNT. After playing more than 1,000 NHL games, he has become one of the leading hockey voices in the USA.
