The Flames still need to sign another forward for expansion purposes

On July 21, 2021, the inaugural roster of the Seattle Kraken will begin to take shape.

The Kraken signed forward prospect Luke Henman to a three-year contract last month; to this day, he remains the only member of the NHL’s 32nd franchise.

The Vegas Golden Knights used their 2017 Expansion Draft picks to bring in multiple players who became integral during their run to the 2018 Stanley Cup Final, including Marc-Andre Fleury, William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault, Brayden McNabb, and David Perron.

It remains to be seen whether the Kraken will even be able to come close to replicating any of Vegas’ early success.
