Folks, the expansion draft is here today. At this time, Seattle has made their picks. We expect that picks will slowly trickle in as the day goes on today. We will continuously update this list as we get more of their picks. As of 3:12pm EST, the only two teams who haven’t leaked are the Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks.
Another thing to note is that the Kraken could have already traded some of these players but we wouldn’t find out about that until tonight.
Here is the Seattle Kraken roster so far:
- Chris Driedger (Florida Panthers)- Driedger has signed a 3 year/$3.5M AAV contract with the Kraken.
- Vitek Vanecek (Washington Capitals)
- Joey Daccord (Ottawa Senators)
- Mark Giordano (Calgary Flames)
- Adam Larsson (Edmonton Oilers)- Larsson has signed a 4 year/$4M AAV contract with the Kraken.
- Jamie Oleksiak (Dallas Stars)- Contract details have not been confirmed at this time but he is the pick from Dallas.
- Vince Dunn (St. Louis Blues)
- Carson Soucy (Minnesota Wild)
- Kurtis MacDermid (Los Angeles Kings)
- Gavin Bayreuther (Columbus Blue Jackets)
- Jeremy Lauzon (Boston Bruins)
- Cale Fleury (Montreal Canadiens)
- Haydn Fleury (Anaheim Ducks)
- William Borgen (Buffalo Sabres)
- Dennis Cholowski (Detroit Redwings)
- Jared McCann (Toronto Maple Leafs)
- Calle Jarnkrok (Nashville Predators)
- Jordan Eberle (New York Islanders)- The Kraken go Eberle over Bailey. Could be a side deal to have made that happen.
- Yanni Gourde (Tampa Bay Lightning)
- Joonas Donskoi (Colorado Avalanche)
- Mason Appleton (Winnipeg Jets)
- Carsen Twarynski (Philadelphia Flyers)- This is a bit of a shocker.
- Morgan Geekie (Carolina Hurricanes)
- Kole Lind (Vancouver Canucks)
- Brandon Tanev (Pittsburgh Penguins)
- Alexander True (San Jose Sharks)
- Nathan Bastian (New Jersey Devils)
- Colin Blackwell (New York Rangers)- Via Twitter/@RickCarpiniello, there could be a trade involved here that gets the Rangers Mark Giordano.
- Tyler Pitlick (Arizona Coyotes)
- John Quenneville (Chicago Blackhawks)
- Carey Price has NOT been taken by the Seattle Kraken.
- Vladimir Tarasenko has NOT been taken by the Seattle Kraken
- Pending UFA Gabriel Landeskog was NOT signed or selected by the Seattle Kraken. I still think he ends up back with Colorado when it’s all said and done.
