Top Seattle Kraken Prospects to Watch at Camp

Berkly Catton
The most anticipated prospect at the Kraken's Development Camp is Berkly Catton, the team's latest first-round selection. Fans of the Spokane Chiefs in the Pacific Northwest WHL are already familiar with Catton, who scored 54 goals and 62 assists over 68 games in the 2023-24 season. Known for his speed, creativity, and skilled hands, Catton has the potential to become a top-tier NHL player. His skills should be on full display during the camp.
Tyson Jugnauth
Tyson Jugnauth's unique developmental path has been a topic of discussion in various forums. The defenseman, drafted by the Kraken in the fourth round of the 2022 NHL Draft, began the 2023-24 season at Wisconsin before switching to the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL midseason. This move allowed Jugnauth to thrive offensively, improving from an average of 0.15 points per game at Wisconsin to a full point-per-game with the Winterhawks. A dynamic offensive defenseman, Jugnauth remains unsigned but could join the Coachella Valley Firebirds if the Kraken sign him. This will be his third Development Camp, providing a good opportunity to gauge his progress against other prospects.
Carson Rehkopf
Carson Rehkopf has been a standout since his first Development Camp last summer. The Kraken's second-round pick in the 2023 NHL Draft had a stellar season with the Kitchener Rangers, ranking second in the OHL with 52 goals despite missing time for the IIHF World Junior Championship. Known for his powerful shot and scoring ability from anywhere on the ice, Rehkopf has an outside chance of making the Kraken's roster for the upcoming season.
Lleyton Roed
Undrafted free agent Lleyton Roed signed with the Kraken in March after an impressive season at Bemidji State, where he led the team with 30 points in 38 games. He then played five regular-season and five postseason games with the Coachella Valley Firebirds, demonstrating noticeable speed and comfort in his first professional games. While Roed might be a few seasons away from competing for a Kraken roster spot, his potential is evident.
