Vanecek (lower body) was traded from the Kraken to the Capitals on Wednesday in exchange for a second-round pick in 2023.

Vanecek was selected by the Kraken in their expansion draft last Wednesday. After the Kraken signed Philipp Grubauer to be their No. 1 netminder, Vanecek became expendable, and they found a suitor in his former team. He'll likely again compete with Ilya Samsonov for a share of the starts in 2021-22.
