Kraken's Ryan Donato: Breaks 30-point mark

Donato notched 16 goals, 31 points, 159 shots on net and 70 hits in 74 contests this season. Donato perhaps flew under the radar a bit, signing with the Kraken as a free agent in September. The 26-year-old went on to establish career-best production across the board while seeing some top-six usage. He shot a reasonable 10.1 percent last year, so regression shouldn't hit too hard if he remains in a top-six role at even strength. Donato could therefore have some appeal in deeper fantasy formats in 2022-23 as a depth forward.

Kraken's Ryan Donato: Reaches 100 career points

The assist was Donato's 100th career point, a milestone that took him 239 contests and four teams to achieve. The 25-year-old is up to 23 points, 129 shots on net, a minus-11 rating and 53 hits through 58 appearances this season. He needs just two points to match his career-best total from 2018-19.

Kraken's Ryan Donato: Snags helper in win

Donato produced an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes. Donato has two goals, one assist and 12 shots on net in his last five outings. The 25-year-old is one of many Kraken forwards who should enjoy more stability in the lineup after the team's fire sale at the trade deadline. The Massachusetts native has 22 points, 125 shots on net, 53 hits and a minus-13 rating through 56 outings.

Kraken's Ryan Donato: Goals in back-to-back games

Donato scored a goal on three shots and added two PIM in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canadiens. Donato gave the Kraken a 2-1 lead at 16:42 of the first period. The 25-year-old forward has scored in each of the last two games since he returned from a three-game stint as a healthy scratch. He's played all around the lineup this season, but he's most often been in a bottom-six role. The Massachusetts native has 13 goals, eight helpers, 119 shots on net, 51 hits, 34 PIM and a minus-14 rating through 53 outings.

Kraken's Ryan Donato: Pots goal Thursday

Donato scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Senators. Donato was back in the lineup after a three-game stint as a healthy scratch. He still saw a team-low 7:34 of ice time -- it's safe to say the 25-year-old is not in favor with head coach Dave Hakstol currently. Donato's third-period marker ended his eight-game goal drought, giving him 12 on the season. The forward has 20 points, 116 shots on net, 51 hits and a minus-15 rating in 52 outings, but without a guaranteed place in the lineup, he's a risky option in fantasy.

Kraken's Ryan Donato: Snags assist Sunday

Donato produced an assist and two PIM in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Sharks. Donato ended a six-game point drought with a helper on Morgan Geekie's first-period tally. Earlier in the season, Donato saw some time in the top six, but he's been limited to fourth-line duties in recent games. The 25-year-old has been a solid depth forward this season with 19 points, 111 shots on net, 48 hits, 30 PIM and a minus-15 rating through 50 contests, though he's only point shy of his output from the same number of games last year.

Kraken Should Extend Ryan Donato

The Seattle Kraken are nautical miles away from a chance at the playoffs. Moving out players for draft capital and future assets should be strongly considered by general manager Ron Francis. However, he needs to look to extend upcoming restricted free agent (RFA) Ryan Donato this offseason. Donato received a one-year contract, one of the many one-year deals they handed out ahead of this season, as Francis looked to assemble a team.
