There is a possibility that the Chicago Blackhawks don’t have Ed Olczyk back next season.
The Chicago Blackhawks are well known for having one of the best broadcast teams in all of hockey. Pat Foley and Ed Olczyk are one of the best duos in the league for a lot of reasons. Foley’s excitement and enthusiasm for the team and game are well shown through his broadcasts and then Mr. O does some great color commentary to complement the game that Pat describes. Olczyk is especially good at his job and that is why he is the leading color commentator for NHL on NBC as well.
There is a chance, however, that he is not back in that position next year. He probably won’t be done in that seat forever as he can get it whenever he wants it back but something else might be in his future. Nothing is set in stone or anything but there are a whole lot of rumors about hockey ops jobs that are available to him to take a look at.
