Comparing the offense between Seattle and Carolina

Published October 26, 2023 at 1:18 PM

The Kraken and Hurricanes on paper have rosters where there are many similarities.

Looking at the build of both team's line combinations, each group goes for an approach of offense by committee.

It is also worth noting that Seattle and Carolina are very close in powerplay percentage, Carolina is 11th with 23.5% while Seattle is 13th with 21.7%.

Seattle's line combinations suggest that they can and will roll out four lines that all can score, and the offense is starting to find more pace in the last few games.

With Seattle coach Dave Hakstol moving Jared McCann down to the third line with Yanni Gourde and Eeli Tolvanen, the team was able to spread out the offense which paid off.

Carolina seems to have a similar approach, with their lineup being full of players who can play up and down on their forward group.

In seven games, Carolina has eight players with five or more points.

Seth Jarvis and Teuvo Teravainen are each tied for the team lead in goals with four a piece, meaning their offense is very spread out.

Going into this season, many considered the Hurricanes to have the deepest forward group in the league due to the various options they have on any given line.

With Seattle and Carolina having a similar offensive structure and goals against in the bottom of the league, Thursday could be yet another high scoring game.
