Saturday's game against the Florida Panthers will see two Kraken players returning to face their former team.

Jared McCann and Alex Wennberg both spent time with the Panthers before becoming members of the Seattle Kraken.

McCann was traded to Florida when he was just 20 years old after being a former first round pick of the Vancouver Canucks.

Over the course of three seasons and 143 games, McCann posted 18 goals and 53 points.


Florida would then trade McCann to the Pittsburgh Penguins before he would truly hit his stride in the NHL.

Alex Wennberg signed with the Florida Panthers after spending six years with the Columbus Blue Jackets, accumulating over 200 points in that span.

The 2020-21 NHL season was the first season after the bubble playoffs of 2020, where the league played a shortened season due to a later start.

This saw many free agents sign one-year contracts, and Wennberg was one of them.

In his only season in Florida, the 26-year-old Wennberg tallied 17 goals and 29 points in 56 games
