After all the attention yesterday gathered by a recorded video showing that the Kraken had intended on selecting Alex Kerfoot from the Toronto Maple Leafs, it appears they have gone a different direction.
From the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Seattle Kraken select forward Jared McCann who the Leafs only just recently acquired for a 7th round pick and prospect Filip Hållander.
The 25-year-old center is signed for one more season with a very palatable $2,940,000 cap hit. Last season, McCann put together 14 goals, 18 assists for 32 points in 42 games with the penguins.
The end result: Toronto traded prospect Filip Hallander and a 7th round pick to Pittsburgh to essentially protect their roster from Seattle.@DFOHockey
