RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Former Carolina Hurricanes personality John Forslund is now the new TV voice of the NHL expansion team – the Seattle Kraken.
The Kraken announced the move through a tweet on Tuesday with a video from Forslund himself.
“Such an honor and privilege to join this organization,” he said. “I can’t wait to get to the Pacific Northwest.”
After nearly 30 years with the Hurricanes, two and a half decades as the team’s play-by-play announcer, Forslund found himself searching for a job last year.
He said the two sides could not work out a deal – leaving him searching for work.
That search has ended with Forslund in Seattle.
