In their reasonably young history, the Seattle Kraken has already proven to be a drafting force with strong scouting abilities.

From prospects acquired through the draft to undrafted free agents, they've made it clear to others that they knew how to find hidden gems.


The Kraken's 2023 2nd Round Draft selection Carson Rehkopf was on fire this weekend as he scored a hat-trick:

A 6'02'' and 198 pounds centerman, Rehkopf is an offensive threat with a weapon of a shot, as demonstrated in his weekend showcase.

‘'Carson Rehkopf anticipates the game, controls his speed to attack and stays in pockets of space. He reads rotations and switches of coverage well, popping down low or moving high when needed. Rehkopf generates a separation gear in open-ice and is described as an in-your-face on-puck player. ‘'

As a 17-year-old, the young man tallied 30 goals and 59 points in 68 games with the Kitchener Rangers and will look to improve his scores heading into the season.

The prospect remains unsigned, but he's expected to be at the team's Rookie camp.
