The NHL’s new team hit the ice for the first time in its history on Tuesday night, as Kraken travels to Sin City to face the Golden Knights. It was the fight of two new franchises in the league, and Vegas left to fill some big shoes. In the opening season of 2017-18, the club won the Pacific Division and took all the way to the Stanley Cup Final. In three seasons since then, they have won another division title (2019-20) and play-offs each year: they made the first round in 2019, the conference final in 2020 and the conference semifinal in 2021.
Seattle is currently playing with house money. One thing they can’t play is the likes of Callie Jarnkrock, Junas Donskoi, Jared McCann and Jamie Oleksiak. They are all in the Covid-1 prot protocol and were declared unavailable earlier in the day. Around midnight, however, Ryan S. Clarke of Athletics reported That Donskoi, McCann and Oleksiak were in Vegas and their game was expected. Then, according to Elliott Friedman of Sportsnet, the three were warming up.
Meet Kraken: Competition roster, game opening
It could be a roll of the dice for bench boss Dave Hoxtall against a stacked Golden Nights roster. One positive is that he could get 2021 Vegina Trophy finalist Philip Grubbauer on the net. (The Vigina Trophy is voted on by general managers and awarded to the league’s top scorer). The free agent signing is coming out of a season two where he went 0-11 with a -92-save save percentage, seven shutouts and an average of 1.5.5 goals. Shock, every hockey reference).
One of the best NHL leaders in Hackstall will also be by his side. Former Flames captain Mark Giordano was surprisingly given a “C” and is the first captain in franchise history.
Although the Kraken lineup and the 2021-22 season are sure to be the ever-rotating roulette wheel, the Golden Knights are always hitting their numbers. 2021 Vegina Trophy winner and co-William M. Also present were team captain Mark Stone, one of the best two-way centers in the game, Max Passioreti, Jonathan Marcellus, William Carlson and perennial Norris Trophy contenders Alex Pietranjelo and Shia Theodore.
Kraken becomes Kraken and Sporting News has all the action since it hit the ice for the first time in a regular season. (All the time east).
