Kraken's Prospect Gets Honest About How He Feels In Seattle

Tye Kartye is feeling positive about his camp performance, saying,
"I'm pretty pleased."

He's focused on giving his best effort every day and maintaining a positive attitude.

Kartye has expressed that he has loved his time in Seattle so far.

Back on March 1, 2022, the Seattle Kraken signed Kartye to a three-year, entry-level contract. His 2022-23 season with the Coachella Valley Firebirds was impressive, with 28 goals and 29 assists in 72 games.

Kartye stood out among rookies, leading in scoring with 57 points and being one of just eight rookies across the league to play in every single one of his team's regular-season games.

Things took an exciting turn on April 16, 2023, when Kartye received a call-up to join the Seattle Kraken.

He made his NHL debut on April 26, in Game 5 of the Western Conference first round against the Colorado Avalanche during the 2023 Stanley Cup playoffs.

Kartye was slotted into the Kraken's top line alongside Matty Beniers and Jordan Eberle, and he marked the occasion with his first NHL goal during the second period.

This accomplishment made him the eighth player in NHL history to score a playoff goal in his NHL debut, a feat not seen since Makar did it in 2019.
