Marshawn Lynch and Macklemore become minority owners of the Seattle Kraken

As the Seattle Kraken near the end of their first regular season in the NHL, one thing is clear: It hasn’t been an easy season on the ice. Right now he’s 30th overall (only the Canadiens and the Coyotes are behind him) and he obviously won’t make the playoffs.

We’re a long way from the successes of the Golden Knights in their first season, but at the same time it was to be expected: the GMs learned from the Vegas expansion blueprint and the Kraken had to settle for building a longer-term project.

But aside from the ice cream, there is at least something to hum Ice hockey in Seattle. And today, another piece of news should add to that excitement as the news that Marshawn Lynch (former star running back for the Seattle Seahawks in the NFL) and Macklemore (Seattle rapper) have become minority owners of the team.

The two had been specifically invited to the expansion draft and were among the group of public figures who announced team selection. Lynch and Macklemore are both popular in Seattle, which explains their presence.

Lynch is obviously known for his NFL career, but now, at 35, he’s much more than a former NFL player (and he is very grateful for everything that happens to him).

A guy like Lynch brings a very pleasant personality to the ownership group. Today, for example, Lynch decided to celebrate his arrival in the organization by offering himself a little tour of Zamboni while indulging himself donuts on ice.


In short, these are two great acquisitions for the Kraken as we add two well-known and popular types within the ownership group. Keep in mind that the team is owned by David Bonderman, Tod Leiweke, and Jerry Bruckheimer, but also has Montreal native Mitch Garber and a few other minority owners within the group.


– Unsurprisingly, Connor Bedard is one of the players selected by Canada for the U18 Championship. Note that the QMJHL players will not be there as their season is not over yet.

– It’s nice to see that.

– The NHL unveils its stars of the week.

– Remember he left Atlanta to join the Dodgers this winter.

– Along with Kim Clavel, Eleider Alvarez is also suffering from COVID-19. Unfortunately, bad luck falls on GYM.
