With training camps set to start in the NHL, we’re continuing with early predictions for the Seattle Kraken roster. The team is coming off a difficult opening season and has a wealth of new young talent on the rise. Kraken finished 2021-2022 by scoring 27-49-6 to finish eighth in the Pacific Division.
The six-foot-three Swedish defender will return to a Kraken side looking to improve in their dismal 2021-2022 season. In 82 matches, he scored 8 goals and 17 assists, and ended with a difference of 23 and 55 penalty minutes.
The Toronto, Ontario, six-foot-seven native is entering his tenth NHL season and second with the Seattle Kraken. The 10-year-old veteran scored one goal and 16 assists in 2021-2022 and ended up scoring one goal of the season.
The Kelowna-born defender is entering his 10th season as well as his second season with Kraken. The 32-year-old scored 4 goals and 19 assists in 2021-2022 with Seattle.

The Alberta Vikings entered their fourth season in the National Hockey League, their second with the Kraken, and skated in 64 games last season. The now 28-year-old defender scored 10 goals and 11 assists in addition to seven in ending the 2021-2022 season.
Joining the Seattle Kraken on a minimum league deal, the Stanley Cup champion had one goal and one assist in 15 games during the 2021-2022 campaign. The Czech national has played in 247 career NHL games.
Seattle goalkeeper Kraken was brought in to be number one last season but had his fair share of struggles, as did the rest of the team. This season he will once again get the chance to lead the Kraken in goal. 2021-2022 The 30-year-old goalkeeper scored a record 18-31 with a 0.889 save percentage and 3.16 goal-to-average.
The Seattle Kraken set out to find a replacement for Chris Dredger who will miss the start of the season due to rehab after successful knee surgery. Martin Jones was signed as a free agent during the off-season. The 32-year-old had a record 12-18 last season with the Philadelphia Flyers, finishing 3.42 on average and 0.900 percent at 21-22.
The Seattle Kraken goalkeeper will be on the sidelines early in the season as he recovers from off-season knee surgery. He’ll be there when he’s healthy and fit to play. Last season, the 27-year-old goalkeeper scored a 9-14 record with a 0.899 save percentage and 2.96 goal-to-average.
The Seattle Kraken still has a lot of work left, but the team has plenty to be optimistic about moving forward into the 2022-2023 NHL season, the second in franchise history.
