Olczyk, who served as the head coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins for a portion of two seasons between 2003 and 2005 finished off his hockey career after retiring with joining the Chicago Blackhawks broadcast team, which sadly came to a end last season after the Blackhawks refused Olcyzk's contract renewal, and went a different route.
