Seattle Kraken Goalie Chris Driedger Goes On Injured Reserve

The Seattle Kraken have placed goaltender Chris Driedger on injured reserve. News of the backup netminder’s injury came via the team’s PR Twitter account on Tuesday. Chris Driedger hasn’t started a game this season for the Kraken but was called into action in the second period of the team’s 6-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night. Stopping six of seven shots in relief, the 27-year-old didn’t raise any suspicion of sustaining an injury during his first league outing.

Here We Go

Hockey time in Tennessee is quickly approaching, and we will finally have the opportunity to view this revolutionized Preds team in action. I have read your comments and understand the frustration, confusion, or indifference with both the team in addition to the lack of writing the last month and a half. Since the Expansion Draft and absent a few anticipated signings, there really has not been much news from 500 Broadway that I found to be substantively impactful for the current situation the Preds find themselves in. For better or for worse? Only time will tell. But with training camp and pre-season underway and the opening night versus the Seattle Kraken on October 14, speculation will soon turn to reality. I remain quite optimistic but where this optimism will lead remains unknown. On paper this team is mehh with Vegas predicting the Preds to finish with 84.5 points for the season and seventh in the Central Division, only over the new Central Division Arizona Coyotes. However, the on paper mehh also comes along with some bona fide players like Duchene, Johansen, Forsberg, Josi, and others (save your personal thoughts on these for now). On the other hand, there is a wide-open gap for young players to fill the roles and take advantage of the chances they are given. The latter of which consume a large part of the roster that will keep them fighting night in, night out.

Roster decisions loom for Seattle Kraken

The Seattle Kraken approached the Expansion Draft differently than the Vegas Golden Knights in a number of ways. They did not make any side deals, they wasted fewer selections on players they did not intend to sign and they made fewer trades after the draft. While the results were somewhat similar, with the Knights adding talent through side deals and the Kraken going after several big free agents, Vegas did not face the roster crunch that Seattle is now staring down. The Knights pared down their roster strategically early on, while the Kraken are seemingly waiting to see how the preseason plays out. With those games already underway, the regular season is right around the corner and the Kraken’s inaugural 23-man roster is far from set.
