Driedger agreed to terms on a three-year, $10.5 million contract with Seattle on Wednesday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.
By signing with the Kraken, Driedger will be the Expansion Draft selection from the Florida Panthers when rosters are officially announced later Wednesday. Last year, the 27-year-old netminder went 14-6-3 with three shutouts and a 2.07 GAA in 23 appearances. With the team reportedly out on Carey Price (knee), Driedger figures to enter the season as the No. 1 option between the pipes.
