Emerald City Hockey

Welcome to Emerald City Hockey, the leading independent media outlet covering the Seattle Kraken. Through our podcast, YouTube channel, Patreon, social media, and Discord server, we’re your home for Kraken news, analysis, and community. As credentialed members of the media, we have a presence at every Kraken home game and practice. Dive in and see what we’re all about!

The Deep Dive Podcast

Join RJ and Dylan for our weekly podcast: The Deep Dive. Every Monday, we take a look into the week’s Kraken news and provide in-depth analysis. Available wherever you get your podcasts.

ECH Postgame Live

Want to talk about the Kraken game you just saw? Of course you do. After every Kraken game, we host a live, interactive postgame show on YouTube. We analyze the game, answer fan questions via a live chat, and provide postgame updates and quotes from the players and coach Hakstol. Win or loss, we always have a great time.


Help support local, independent hockey coverage and unlock a ton of perks and bonus content! Patrons get access to our weekly Red Glare podcast, monthly Armchair GM stream, Prospect Chat, ECH Live Commentary, Practice Recaps, and a lot more- all for less than the price of a beer at a Kraken game.


Join an online community of hundreds of Kraken fans on our Discord server! Cheer on the Kraken, talk NHL hockey, share memes, show your fandom, and more with the ECH Community.
