Big news today as the Seattle Kraken have officially placed their final payment to the league and are officially the 32nd NHL team!
This is a big deal as it's more than just something we all knew becoming official. The Seattle Kraken is now open for business. Now the team is able to make trades and sign free agents, specifically college free agents will be the most intriguing ones to target.
The success of the Vegas Golden Knights is still going to be fresh in the minds of every GM which may mean we see far fewer trades leading up to the Expansion Draft on July 21st however GM Ron Francis can now take any conversations he has had over the past few months and legally put paper to pen.
Hopefully this means we will have some exciting news to discuss soon, including whoever will be the first player to join the Seattle Kraken.
