Three days later, Seattle will host the Vegas Golden Knights on October 15 at the team’s home opener at the Climate Pledge Arena.

Other notable games highlighted by the team in the publication include matchups against the San Jose Sharks (November 23), Tampa Bay Lightning (January 16, 2023), defending Stanley Cup champions, Colorado Avalanche (January 21, 2023) and the Toronto Maple Leafs (February 26, 2023).

The full Kraken schedule can be found here.

Despite initial optimism before the start of the season, the Kraken finished 27-49-6, including a nine-game losing streak in December and January, followed by 11 losses in 12 games in February and March. The playoffs, an immediate hopeful achievement to check off, were an afterthought before the All-Star break.

Seattle, which had the third-worst record in the league, finished the season 10-12-0 in their last 22 games, a mark that was a big improvement.

Now the Kraken has a fourth overall pick to complement his young core in NHL Draft Thursday.

The top pick gives the team an opportunity to complement 2021 No. 2 overall Matty Beniers, who joined the Kraken late in the season and has nine points in 10 games. The 19-year-old played up front with Ryan Donato and Jordan Eberle.

Armed with top prospects in back-to-back drafts, Seattle boasts more than $23 million in cap spot, giving the team multiple opportunities to turn one of the NHL’s worst teams into a playoff contender.

The Kraken has three unrestricted free agents — players who are free to sign with any team — and seven restricted free agents that Seattle can keep on the team despite potential interest from another team.

The NHL’s free agency period begins July 13.
