Blackwell will be selected by the Kraken in Wednesday night's Expansion Draft, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

Blackwell became a full-time NHLer for the first time in his career at age 27 in 2020-21, picking up 12 goals, 10 helpers and 64 shots on net while averaging 14:00 of ice time per contest in 47 appearances with the Rangers. The 5-foot-9 forward will likely slot into a bottom-six role for Seattle next season.
