•   But another free agent defenseman will be as Adam Larsson has a deal with the Kraken.

•   Keep an eye out for Oleksiak, too.

•   It appears that the Kraken may have their future Captain lined up. Calgary’s Mark Giordano is headed to Seattle.

•   After being traded to the Maple Leafs a few days ago, Jared McCann will be headed to Seattle.
