Kraken's Jamie Oleksiak: Steady as ever in 2021-22

Oleksiak posted a goal and 16 assists in 72 games this season. Oleksiak added 182 hits and 86 blocked shots, as physicality remains his top contribution. The 29-year-old played in a top-four role throughout the year for the Kraken, and his minus-1 rating is a positive sign given how poor the team's defense was in general. Oleksiak signed a five-year deal with the Kraken prior to the expansion draft, so he'll remain a defensive stalwart on the team's blue line for years to come.

Oleksiak notched a shorthanded assist, three hits and two blocked shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Bruins. Oleksiak entered Thursday on a 10-game point drought, a stretch in which he also missed nine contests due to a lower-body injury and an illness.
