Hakstol Tweaks Lines Ahead of Monday's Game

Published October 30, 2023 at 2:54 PM

The Seattle Kraken head Coach Dave Hakstol has tweaked the lines ahead of Monday's matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Hakstol's previous line changes had some good early returns, but saw the offense not produce on Saturday aside from the third line of Yanni Gourde, Jared McCann, and Eeli Tolvanen.

The third line will stay together for tonight's game, as will the fourth line of Devin Shore, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, and Kailer Yamamoto.

Swapping places on their respective lines will be Jordan Eberle and Oliver Bjorkstrand.

Eberle was skating on the first line with Matty Beniers and Tye Kartye, scoring a goal against the Red Wings, but has not kept up his scoring since then.

Eberle will be alongside Jaden Schwartz and Alexander Wennberg.

Bjorkstrand's line was creating and burying their chances against the Red Wings and Hurricanes, with Schwartz scoring two goals in Detroit and Bjorkstrand having a goal and an assist against Carolina.

The defense will run the same pairings as last game.
