Seattle's penalty kill has been finding steady consistency over their last three games, heading into their home tilt against the Nashville Predators.

It is worth noting that the penalty kill has fallen to 16th in the NHL, putting them right in the middle of the league.

However, the Kraken are 2nd in the NHL in the amount of times they've been shorthanded per game, coming in below three times a game.

Being one of the most disciplined teams in the league, the Kraken have been getting much better at not giving their opponent many man advantages.


Seattle is also tied for 14th in the league for shorthanded goals allowed with six, tying them with the New York Islanders and Philadelphia Flyers.

Also ranking at 14th is their shorthanded goals allowed per game, coming in at .60.

An area that has been truly benefiting Seattle's penalty kill is their faceoff win percentage, which is 7th in the NHL when on the penalty kill with 52.4%.

After playing some very tough power play units their last 6 games, Seattle's penalty kill could improve in the coming weeks.
