Former NHL forward JT Brown hired by Seattle Kraken as television analyst

Former NHL forward JT Brown was named a television analyst for the league's newest franchise in Seattle, the team announced Monday. 

Brown will join play-by-play announcer John Forslund in calling games on ROOT Sports Northwest for the Seattle Kraken's first season in 2021-22.

"What better way to retire, to stay in hockey, to go to a new, great organization and what they're trying to do," Brown said. "I believe they want to be a leader in diversity, whether that's racial diversity or gender diversity, on and off the ice with their hiring. That's something I really want to be part of. For me, I think all the stars have aligned and this is something that I was meant to do."
