As you have heard by now, the NHL has a new expansion team, the Seattle Kraken.
The Kraken will begin play in 2021 but before that happens, an expansion draft will be held where they will be able to select one player from each current NHL franchise.
On Friday, The Hockey News put out an expansion mock draft which includes who the Kraken will select from each franchise.
According to the mock draft, the Kraken will select Detroit Red Wings defensemen, Troy Stecher.
Here is what The Sporting News has to say about the pick.
DETROIT RED WINGS: Troy Stecher, D
Cap hit: $1,700,000
Contract: UFA, 2022
The B.C. boy can move the puck, even if he doesn’t have the highest ceiling. Expiring deal.
Nation, who do you think the Kraken will poach from the Red Wings?
