Deep Ink: Morgan Geekie

The Kraken forward has a full "Squad" of body art that represents life lessons. Is getting tattoos addictive? If you ask Morgan Geekie, the answer is yes. The Kraken forward can't remember when exactly he got his first tattoo, "I was 16 or 17," but he knows he was young enough that his dad had to accompany him to sign the consent form. It took all of 45 minutes to get the ink done and "hurt less than I thought." Geekie was hooked.

Kraken's Morgan Geekie: Nearing everyday role

Geekie registered 22 points in 73 contests this season. Geekie was still occasionally a healthy scratch in his first year with the Kraken, but he was able to establish himself better in a team that lacked the Hurricanes' depth. His seven goals and 15 assists (four on the power play) represented an encouraging growth on offense. The Kraken's fluidity up front often led him to move up and down the lineup at center or wing -- the addition of Matty Beniers would likely suggest Geekie would be best suited as a winger to draw any chance of top-six minutes in 2022-23. The 23-year-old is set to be a restricted free agent this summer, and he'll likely be due to make a little more than the league minimum.

Kraken's Morgan Geekie: On modest three-game point streak

Geekie notched an assist in Monday's 6-1 win over the Kings. Geekie extended his point streak to three games (two goals, two assists) with the helper on Jared McCann's third-period tally. Since the trade deadline last Monday, Geekie has seen second-line usage, which likely explains his bump in offense. The 23-year-old has 20 points, 81 shots on net, a minus-12 rating and 18 PIM in 59 outings this season.

Kraken's Morgan Geekie: Pots late goal

Geekie scored a goal on two shots and added two PIM in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Kings. Geekie's goal came with four seconds left in regulation, so it didn't have any impact on the outcome. The 23-year-old has seen over 10 minutes of ice time in each of his last five games, earning four points in that span. For the season, the Canadian center has 19 points, 80 shots, 18 PIM and a minus-13 rating through 58 contests in a versatile role.

Kraken's Morgan Geekie: One of each Tuesday

Geekie scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes. Geekie helped out on Carson Soucy's second-period marker, then added some insurance with a goal of his own in the third. This was Geekie's second multi-point effort this season -- the other one was Nov. 29 versus the Sabres. The 23-year-old could see a boost in playing time after the Kraken traded away a number of middle-six forwards at the deadline Monday. He's up to 18 points, 78 shots on net, 37 hits and a minus-14 rating through 57 appearances.

Geekie posted a power-play assist and four PIM in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canadiens. For the second straight game, Geekie got on the scoresheet with a helper. He had the secondary assist on Jared McCann's power-play tally in the second period.

Kraken's Morgan Geekie: Nets lone goal in loss

Geekie scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Sharks. Geekie's tally came nine seconds after the Sharks opened the scoring. The 23-year-old had been held off the scoresheet in his previous five outings. Geekie has four goals, nine assists, 69 shots on net and a minus-13 rating in 48 games this season, and his bottom-six role doesn't offer much for fantasy managers to get excited about.

Kraken's Morgan Geekie: Delivers assist in return

Geekie (upper body) logged an assist and saw 8:21 of ice time in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Sharks. Geekie set up Calle Jarnkrok's tally in the third period, which stood as the game-winner. The 23-year-old Geekie had missed the last four games with his upper-body injury, and his ice time was a little lower than usual, though the Kraken took five penalties in the third period that likely factored into his lesser usage. The Manitoba native is up to three goals, 11 points, 49 shots on net and a minus-7 rating in 35 contests. He'll likely stay in the bottom six and see time on the second power-play unit going forward.

Kraken's Morgan Geekie: Ruled out against Stars

Geekie is dealing with an upper-body injury that will keep him out of the lineup versus Dallas on Wednesday, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports. Geekie has only been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup and is still considered day-to-day leading into a matchup with St. Louis on Thursday. With just one goal in 23 contests, Geekie shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value even once restored to the lineup.

Kraken's Morgan Geekie: Gathers power-play assist

Geekie notched a power-play assist and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Flyers. Geekie set a new career high in points with 10 through just 31 games this season after he had nine points in 36 outings last year. The 23-year-old has picked up three assists on the power play in 2021-22. He'll continue to see a bottom-six role at even strength, but the power-play time could make him an intriguing option in deeper fantasy formats.

The 23-year-old center is up to three goals, five assists, 41 shots on net and a minus-6 rating in 28 games. He should get an extended look as the third-line center with Yanni Gourde's (COVID-19 protocols) absence testing the Kraken's depth down the middle.

Kraken's Morgan Geekie: Grabs power-play helper

Geekie recorded a power-play assist in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Capitals. Geekie helped out on a Jared McCann goal in the first period. The 23-year-old Geekie saw just 6:35 of ice time Sunday -- that's his lowest mark of the season by a mile. He's collected four points in 18 outings, with both of his assists coming on the power play. Based on his dwindling ice time, Geekie could be in doubt for an everyday role in the lineup -- Nathan Bastian has been healthy scratched for the last five games but could be an option to enter the lineup if head coach Dave Hakstol shakes things up.
