Everett Fitzhugh is the Voice of the Kraken

The Seattle Kraken hired Everett Fitzhugh “in a team broadcaster role that will be crafted as he works for the franchise.” Barrett Sports Media reports “the team has not settled on Everett Fitzhugh’s specific role. He will be calling games on either radio or television. In the meantime, he will serve as a team ambassador in the city.”

Fitzhugh, a Hockeytown native, has experience in both on-air and PR/media relations roles with the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL and Youngstown Phantoms of the USHL. He seems like a great choice for Seattle. Get to know Everett Fitzhugh below:
