Kraken Sign Forward Prospect

The Seattle Kraken are adding to their prospect pool, as they are set to sign Samuel Bucek to an entry-level deal. 

Bucek is a very interesting forward for the Kraken to add. The 23-year-old winger just lit up the Slovak Extraliga, as he led the league with 41 goals and 64 points in 50 games with HK Nitra. Although expecting him to replicate those kinds of numbers in North America is far-fetched, it is clear that the 6-foot-3 winger does have skill. 

The Kraken are very much still building their roster, and adding a prospect like Bucek for free is certainly a move that should make fans happy. It will be intriguing to see how well he performs next season - whether that's in the AHL or even with Seattle.
