Seattle Kraken Expansion Draft Tracker: Latest Updates, Rumors On Picks

There undoubtedly will be leaks throughout the day


Wednesday is the day we will know what the newest NHL team, the Seattle Kraken, will look like.

Also, there is a high likelihood that even if these are their selections, there will be a ton of trades/side deals (Blackwell reportedly is among those likely to be moved), many of which could be revealed during the expansion draft special. So, while the picks did get leaked, this won’t be the last of the news.
