Yesterday the Chicago native Eddie Olczyk left the Blackhawks broadcast booth after 16 seasons of covering the team.

According to Mark Lazerus of the Athletic:
A team source said Blackhawks leadership was «blindsided» by the news once it was published by The Athletic. The source said the Blackhawks had offered a «multi-year contract extension» and believed they had a verbal agreement «weeks ago.» The deal offered Olczyk a higher rate on a per-game basis but did not include all 82 games, because of Olczyk's national duties with TNT and NBC's horse-racing coverage

Yesterday when Olczyk had his exit interview he got very emotional and you can hear that he started to cry, this definitely wasn't an easy decision for him:
