The Seattle Kraken announced their initial 30-player roster during the 2021 NHL expansion draft Wednesday night.
Seattle had to select at least 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goalies. The remaining selections were allowed to come from any position. One pick came from each of the existing NHL franchises aside from the Vegas Golden Knights, who were exempt from the process.
The Kraken also had an exclusive negotiation window with potential free agents. Any contracts signed counted as their pick from the players' previous teams.
Here's a look at the full list of selections.
Anaheim Ducks: D Haydn Fleury
Arizona Coyotes: F Tyler Pitlick
Boston Bruins: D Jeremy Lauzon
Buffalo Sabres: D Will Borgen
Calgary Flames: D Mark Giordano

The Kraken are expected to be competitive out of the gate, though they have a tough act to follow after the Golden Knights reached the Stanley Cup Final in their debut season after a strong showing in the 2017 expansion draft.
Like Vegas, Seattle worked out side deals with opposing teams to avoid selecting certain players in the expansion draft in exchange for other assets. Details of those agreements should be available ahead of this year's entry draft, which is set to get underway Friday.
The Kraken passed on some of the more high-profile players available, most notably the Montreal Canadiens' Carey Price and St. Louis Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko.
Seattle will begin play during the 2021-22 NHL season.
