In a last-minute announcement that underscores the uncertainty surrounding the Seattle Kraken's backup goaltender position.

Head coach Dave Hakstol has revealed that there will be no preferential treatment given to Joey Daccord or Chris Driedger in the competition for the role.


With only two more preseason games on the schedule before the start of the season, the Kraken find themselves in a unique situation of not yet having a clear backup goaltender.


Hakstol's decision to keep the competition open highlights the intense battle between Daccord and Driedger for the coveted spot. Coach Hakstol was quick to credit both goaltenders for their hard work and dedication, acknowledging their contributions to the team.

As a result, fans can expect to see both Daccord and Driedger in action during the upcoming game in Abbotsford.

This further adds to the anticipation surrounding the Kraken's final roster decisions as they prepare for the start of what promises to be an exciting NHL season.
