‘Beast Mode’ on Ice? Will Marshawn Lynch Play for Seattle Kraken?
Sure, we've all heard of "Disney on Ice" but "BEAST MODE on Ice"?!?! It's more likely than you think!
Recently, Seattle Seahawks former standout running back Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch was videotaped ice skating in full Colorado Avelanche hockey gear with former NHL player Akim Aliu. Aliu last played in the league in 2012-2013 for the Calgary Flames.
The story was picked up by national publications such as ESPN.com, Yahoo! Sports and even tabloid TMZ.com.
Lynch, via his marketing agency, Beast Mode Marketing, posed an intriguing idea to the NHL's San Jose Sharks as well as the expansion Seattle Kraken hockey clubs (The Kraken are scheduled to debut in the 2021-22 NHL season.) They introduced him as "Shawn Gretzky".

Alright, I know that it's a pipe dream but, then again, who ever thought we'd see the one-and-only "Beast Mode" strapping on a pair of ice skates in the first place, eh? We can all dream, can't we?
