Kraken's Ryan Winterton: Expected to miss months
Winterton (shoulder) is not at the Kraken's training camp, Andy Eide of the Kraken's official site reports.
Winterton is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, per Emerald City Hockey, and it's expected to keep him sidelined for over two months. Winterton is expected to return around Christmas for OHL Hamilton, where he'll likely play most, if not all, of the upcoming campaign.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Jesper Froden: Participates in training camp
Froden (lower body) is listed on the training camp roster for the Kraken, Kate Shefte of The Seattle Times reports.
Froden dealt with an injury at the end of last season while with the Bruins. The 28-year-old inked a two-way contract this year, though it's likely he faces an uphill battle to make the Kraken's roster out of training camp. He played his first seven NHL games in 2021-22, scoring one goal on 10 shots and adding eight hits.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Vince Dunn: Practices Thursday
Dunn (upper body) participated in Thursday's practice, Kate Shefte of The Seattle Times reports.
Dunn missed the last four games of 2021-22 with the injury, but he appears good to go to begin this season. The 25-year-old is beyond prospect status but could still see a slight uptick in 2022-23, as he's expected to get first crack at manning the point on the Kraken's top power-play unit. He matched his career high with 35 points in 73 games last year, including a career-best 11 with the man advantage.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Andre Burakovsky: Takes ice for practice
Burakovsky (hand) practiced Thursday on the first day of Kraken training camp, Kate Shefte of The Seattle Times reports.
Burakovsky missed the last four games of the Avalanche's Stanley Cup run last year, but the injury wasn't considered significant. The 27-year-old signed a four-year deal in the offseason and should slot into a top-six role in his first year with the Kraken.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Edward Wittchow: Training camp invitee
Wittchow will take part in training camp with Seattle on a PTO, Kraken radio announcer Mike Benton reports Monday.
Wittchow managed just five points in 48 games for AHL Hershey last season and has never made his NHL debut. As such, the University of Wisconsin product figures to be a roster placeholder for the Kraken and should, at best, expect to land an AHL-only contract coming out of camp.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Callum Booth: Earns training camp tryout
Booth will be with the Kraken on a professional tryout agreement, Kraken radio announcer Mike Benton reports Monday.
Booth shouldn't be expected to crack the Opening Night roster with both Philipp Grubauer and Martin Jones under contract for Seattle. Without a clear path to the NHL, Booth figures to be a non-factor in fantasy contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Returns to Seattle on PTO
Sprong signed a professional tryout agreement with the Kraken on Tuesday, per CapFriendly.
Sprong finished last year with the Kraken, racking up six goals in 16 games after he was traded from the Capitals. He hit the 20-point mark for the second straight year, despite seeing his shooting percentage dip from 17.6 percent in 2020-21 to 9.2 percent last year. The Kraken addressed their lack of wing depth over the offseason, but Sprong could still earn at least a two-way deal with a strong showing in preseason.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Cale Fleury: Secures two-way deal
Fleury penned a one-year, two-way contract with Seattle on Tuesday.
Fleury played in just nine games for the Kraken last season in which he registered four shots, 19 hits and 14 blocks while averaging just 14:34 of ice time. The 23-year-old defender has just one NHL point in 50 outings, so fantasy players shouldn't be expecting much in the way of offense out of him even when he is up in the NHL this year.... See More ...

Kraken's Ryan Donato: Signs one-year deal
Donato inked a one-year, $1.2 million contract with Seattle on Wednesday.
Donato saw action in 74 games for the Kraken this past season in which he set new personal bests in goals (16), assists (15) and shots (159). Despite averaging 1:48 of ice time with the man advantage, Donato managed a meager one power-play point. If the 26-year-old center can improve in that area, he could challenge for the 40-point threshold for the first time in his NHL career.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Michal Kempny: Secures deal with Kraken
Kempny signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with Seattle on Sunday, per PuckPedia.
Kempny split time between the NHL and AHL levels last season, totaling nine points in 39 appearances. The 31-year-old blueliner has 63 points and 146 PIM through 247 career NHL games. He should serve as a depth defenseman with the Kraken for the 2022-23 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Morgan Geekie: Signs with Seattle
Geekie signed a one-year, $1.4 million contract with the Kraken on Sunday.
Geekie, who had been a restricted free agent, logged seven goals and 15 assists in 73 games with the Kraken last season. The 24-year-old forward will likely slot into a bottom-six role with Seattle in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Traded to Seattle
The Blue Jackets traded Bjorkstrand to the Kraken in exchange for a 2023 third-round pick and a 2024 fourth-round pick Friday.
The Blue Jackets needed to open up some cap space after signing Johnny Gaudreau and re-signing Patrik Laine, so despite racking up 28 goals and 57 points through 80 games last campaign, Bjorkstrand and his $5.7 million annual cap hit are on the move to Seattle. Bjorkstrand should slot into a middle-six role and receive regular time with the man advantage with the Kraken in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Carsen Twarynski: Pens one-year pact
Twarynski signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Kraken on Thursday.
Twarynski failed to break into the lineup last year, having spent the entirety of the campaign in the minors with AHL Charlotte. In the 24-year-old winger's 71 games for the Checkers, he managed five goals and 13 helpers. While Twarynski could get back into an NHL game this upcoming season for the first time since 2020-21, he should be expected to play the bulk of his time in the minors, limiting his fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Kole Lind: Snags two-way pact
Lind penned a one-year, two-way contract with Seattle on Thursday.
Lind played in 23 games for the Kraken last year in which he recorded two goals on 31 shots, six assists and 18 hits while averaging 11:50 of ice time. Given the nature of his two-way deal, Lind should probably be expected to bounce between levels next year.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's John Hayden: Heading out west
Hayden signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Kraken on Thursday, per PuckPedia.
Hayden was a regular presence in the Sabres' bottom six last year, posting four points in 55 contests. He added 104 hits and 84 PIM, so he'll be a source of toughness if he can make the Kraken's roster out of training camp.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Cameron Hughes: Signs with Seattle
Hughes signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Kraken on Wednesday.
Hughes spent the entirety of the 2021-22 season with AHL Providence, racking up 14 goals and 45 points through 59 contests. He'll likely continue to spend the majority, if not the entirety of the next two seasons in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Austin Poganski: Signs in Seattle
Poganski signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Kraken on Wednesday.
Poganski was solid with AHL Manitoba last season, posting 30 points in 49 contests. He's played in three NHL campaigns, picking up 22 appearances without a point. The 26-year-old forward is likely to begin 2022-23 with AHL Coachella Valley.... See More ... See Less
