Seattle Kraken: Best Addition & Worst Subtraction of 2023 Offseason

The 2023-24 regular season is finally here, much to the delight of hockey fans. Due to this, we here at NHLTR are starting a series going over each team's best addition and worst subtraction of the summer.

In this latest edition of the series, let's take a look at the Seattle Kraken.

Best Addition: Kailer Yamamoto

It was a quiet offseason for the Kraken, but they did bring in an intriguing forward in Kailer Yamamoto. The former first-round pick had a rough year with the Edmonton Oilers last season, but now he has a change of scenery, and he should have the potential to turn things around because of it. Overall he provides decent secondary scoring, which is something Seattle certainly needs.

Worst Subtraction: Daniel Sprong

The Kraken lost a solid scorer in Daniel Sprong this offseason to the Detroit Red Wings. They will miss his production in their bottom six and power play, but they also are hoping that Yamamoto can help make up for it.
