Eeli Tolvanen established himself as being a quality contributor on the Kraken after being picked up on waivers last season.

Tolvanen never quite found his footing in Nashville, but seems to have found a home in Seattle, scoring 16 goals in 48 games last season.

This year, Tolvanen got off to a slow start, as did the rest of Seattle's offense, but is beginning to find more consistency.

Ever since being put on a line with Yanni Gourde and Jared McCann, the chances have been coming much more frequently.


NHL Edge shows exactly where Tolvanen places among the rest of the league in terms of specific stats.

Tolvanen is an efficient goal scorer, but only has one on the season.

His high danger shooting percentage is in the 77th percentile of the league at 25%, but only has four shots on net in those high danger areas.

Tolvanen has 17 shots on goal this season which places him in the 73rd percentile.

However, his 5.9% shooting percentage places him well below the league average of 10.2%.

With how well Tolvanen has meshed with his new linemates, the goals should come with more time in the offensive zone.
