Former Seattle Kraken forward Ryan Donato has been fitting in well with his new team.

Donato left Seattle via free agency in July and signed a two-year, $4 million contract with the Chicago Blackhawks right away.

After the 2022-23 season, Chicago won the NHL's draft lottery and drafted Connor Bedard with the first overall pick.

Despite being third-last in the league, the Blackhawks gained a reputation as being a team who battles hard each night, and Donato fit the mold of what they were looking for.



Donato currently has 2 goals and 4 points in 8 games with Chicago and seems to be fitting in nicely.

In their season debut against the Penguins, Donato played on the Blackhawks' first line right wing spot alongside Connor Bedard and Taylor Hall.

In Seattle, Ryan Donato tallied 30 goals and 58 points in 145 games across two seasons.
