Giordano is set to be selected by Seattle in Wednesday night's Expansion Draft, TSN's Salim Nadim Valji reports.
Giordano will turn 38 years old in October, but the long-time Flames captain will provide the Kraken with invaluable leadership, and he still has some gas left in the tank, as evidenced by the nine goals, 26 points, 142 shots and 110 hits he put up through 56 games last campaign. Giordano will likely see top-pairing minutes with Seattle in 2021-22.
Giordano was left off the Flames' protected player list ahead of Wednesday's Expansion Draft.
The Flames' captain has one year remaining on his current deal with a cap hit of $6.75 million, and though he managed 26 points in 56 games last year, he's in the twilight of his career at age 37. That said, the Kraken could do worse than to take the blueliner on for his veteran savvy and steadying presence on the back end for at least one year -- if they're able to fit his salary into their roster, of course.
