What’s “Kraken” in Seattle?
On 21-Jul-21, the Seattle Kraken will announce the 30 players that will join the club for the inaugural 2021-22 NHL season. The league’s newest member must select at least one player from each NHL team (except Vegas), while ensuring they select a minimum of 14 forwards, 9 defensemen and 3 goalies.
