Kraken's Yanni Gourde: Fills role well

Gourde had 21 goals, 27 assists, 127 shots on net and 77 hits in 74 games this season. Gourde was pretty much everything he was expected to be after being one of the bigger names selected by the Kraken in their expansion draft. The versatile 30-year-old played mostly as a center, moving between the first and third lines as head coach Dave Hakstol often opted to mix things up. Gourde's 48 points including seven on the power play and four while shorthanded. His strong all-situations play will likely act as a safety net for Matty Beniers in 2022-23 -- expect Gourde to draw the tougher assignments to allow Beniers free reign on offense as he adapts to the grind of a full NHL campaign.

Kraken's Yanni Gourde: Tallies in Friday's win

Gourde scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 3-0 win over the Sharks. Gourde opened the scoring at 6:17 of the first period, and that was all the help Chris Driedger needed to secure the win.

He posted five goals and four assists in 14 games in April, giving him 48 points, 125 shots on net, 77 hits and a minus-13 rating for the season with Sunday's game in Winnipeg left on the slate.

It's been 10 games since Gourde posted a multi-point effort -- he has one goal and three helpers in that span.

Yanni Gourde, team leaders continue to preach Kraken’s need for ‘full 60 minutes’ of effort

MONTREAL, Quebec — Kraken forward Yanni Gourde says the team’s efforts still aren’t consistent enough and must change. “To be honest, the first two periods of the Ottawa game — not a great effort,” alternate captain Gourde said after Saturday’s morning skate, speaking of an overtime loss to the Senators two nights before. “The third period, yeah, we kind of showed up. But that was not a 60-minute effort. And if you’re going to win in this league, you’re going to have to play for 60. I don’t think we’ve done that consistently enough.”
