Dave Hakstol Releases An Announcement Regarding Kraken's Official lineup

Published October 5, 2023 at 1:41 PM

In Wednesday night's preseason clash in Abbotsford, it was the trio of Shane Wright, Oliver Bjorkstrand, and Eeli Tolvanen who stole the show for the Kraken.

Their performance helped secure a 2-1 victory over the Canucks, leaving the coaching staff with some critical decisions to make regarding the roster.

Kraken head coach Dave Hakstol acknowledged the upcoming roster decisions, stating,
"We've got one game left, so we'll decide what that roster's going to look like and how close it'll look to our regular-season lineup. We've got some things to talk about after tonight, and we'll go from there."

The game itself featured a mix of depth players, NHL hopefuls, and several regular AHL players on both sides.

As the preseason comes to a close, the Kraken are gearing up for their final matchup against the Oilers in Edmonton, where they're expected to ice a full NHL lineup.

Hakstol also pointed out the challenging ice conditions at Abbotsford Centre, which affected the flow of the game, particularly in the first two periods.

However, the Kraken adapted and finally found their rhythm in the third period, registering a total of nine shots compared to the meager six shots in the preceding two periods.

It was a testament to their resilience and ability to adjust to challenging circumstances on the ice.
