Beastmode is all in on releasing the Kraken.
On Monday, the legendary Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch joined the Seattle Kraken ownership group, along with Seattle-based recording artist Macklemore.
“I’ve been a part of a lot of things, but this is something I never would have imagined,” Lynch wrote on Twitter. “As a young hyena I always dreamed of playing on a professional team but owning one is something special.”

Thank you @SeattleKraken, shout out to @macklemore. Seattle, I’m here. Stand Up!!! pic.twitter.com/K35DNZrVPX
Marshawn’s energy on the ice (which you can see in the above-embedded video) is exactly the type of thing the Kraken will need moving into their second season in the NHL. They currently have the third-worst point total in the league and are currently in the cellar in the Pacific Division.
Lynch will also be in a role befitting his charitable attitudes, working in a role with the team’s “Hockey is for Everyone” initiative. This will be a great way for Lynch to continue to involve himself and bring positive change in the Seattle community.
