Former NHL Chicago Blackhawks center Eddie Olczyk is joining the ESPN1000 Chicago team and the Kap & Co. weekday show starting today, June 19. Olczyk will co-host twice a week, generally on Mondays and Fridays, alongside David Kaplan from 9AM-Noon.

"What an incredible opportunity to join the team at ESPN1000 and Kap & Co.," said Olczyk. "To work with Kap, who is a great friend and a media legend in our city, will be challenging and a lot of fun. I cannot wait to join him. I'd like to thank Jim Pastor and Adam Delevitt from ESPN Chicago and John McDonough, the Blackhawks organization and NBC Sports for allowing me this flexibility."

Jim Pastor, vice president and general manager of ESPN1000 Chicago, stated, "What fans may not realize is that Eddie is not only a legendary hockey and horse racing broadcaster, but having grown up here, he's also a huge fan of all Chicago sports teams. Pairing him twice a week with his good friend David Kaplan will give him a chance to put those passions on display for ESPN listeners."

In addition to his Kap & Co. role, Olczyk will continue his work for NBC Sports covering the NHL and horse racing and locally for the Blackhawks on NBC Sports Chicago and WGN-TV.
