Updated Seattle Kraken roster with every pick

The Seattle Kraken are selecting the first roster in franchise history, which means NHL Expansion Draft leaks are pouring in. 

After years of waiting and months filled with speculation, the Seattle Kraken are finally joining the NHL.

Seattle was already a team, as the end of the 2021-22 season marked the dawning of a new era for the NHL. Hockey in Seattle had been announced dating back to 2019, but even though we had a logo reveal and a new stadium built, the Kraken becoming the newest NHL franchise didn’t feel real until the roster started to be put together.

General Manager Ron Francis has been working tirelessly since Saturday to figure out the best possible roster to piece together from the list of players left unprotected by their teams in the NHL Expansion Draft.
