When the Kraken became an official team in 2021, the draft process looked different than it did for established teams. Following the same process as the second newest franchise, the Vegas Golden Knights, the team was able to choose one player from each of the 31 other NHL teams who were not protected by their franchise. 

The Kraken managed to pull together a strong roster, with career players such as Mark Giordano and Jaden Schwartz in addition to young talent like Matty Beniers. Check out the full 2023-2024 Seattle Kraken roster below, with players organized by position.

The Kraken’s history as an NHL team started back in 2018, when the city of Seattle was awarded an expansion franchise team, thanks to a bid from the Seattle Hockey Partners. It wasn’t until the 2021-2022 season that the team began playing, however.

The Seattle Kraken joined the Pacific Division in 2021, expanding the sport along the West Coast of the US. The Kraken are named after the mythical tentacled sea beast with roots in Scandinavian folklore that looks much like the Pacific octopus that lives in the Puget Sound. Seattle Kraken general manager Ron Francis remarked:

“I think this name embodies a connection with the sea and a curiosity of what lies beneath it. It’s a natural tie to Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.”

The Seattle Kraken finished out their first season (2021-2022) with a 27-49-6 record, as the team attempted to get their sea legs under them. Just a year later, however, the team’s record flipped, ending the 2022-2023 season with a 46-28-8 record. They even clinched a playoff position.

The Kraken play their home games at Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, Washington, the first net-zero carbon certified arena in the world.
