  • Kraken's Max McCormick: Placed on waivers

    McCormick was waived by the Kraken on Wednesday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    Unsurprisingly, McCormick's short stay in training camp wasn't enough to earn him a spot on the big club's initial roster. The 29-year-old winger will likely end up with AHL Charlotte unless he's claimed on waivers. He'll serve as organization forward depth, but it's unlikely he'll make much of a scoring impact even if he's called up during the season.

  • Kraken's Max McCormick: Signs in Seattle

    McCormick signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Kraken on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.

    McCormick posted three points and 16 hits in 12 games with the Hurricanes last season. The 29-year-old winger is unlikely to begin the year with the Kraken, so expect him to report to AHL Charlotte. Even if he makes his way to the big club later in 2021-22, he'll likely be stuck in a depth role.

  • Hurricanes' Max McCormick: Designated for waivers

    McCormick was placed on waivers Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    McCormick is unlikely to garner much in the way of interest given most teams have finalized their postseason rosters. In 10 appearances for the Hurricanes this year, the 29-year-old winger has registered two goals on five shots, 16 hits and two blocks while averaging just 7:06 of ice time. By waiving McCormick, Carolina will be able to move him between the active roster and the taxi squad throughout the playoffs.
