REPORT: Shane Wright to Leave The Seattle Kraken in Two Days

Published December 7, 2022 at 3:21 PM

With the roster for World Juniors being prepped, the Seattle Kraken have a decision to make.

The 2023 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships will begin December 26th and go through January 5th. Training camps start on December ninth, just two days away.

Wright did not have a great preseason, which was then followed by minimal playing time at the NHL level. Finally, the Kraken decided to move him to the AHL, where he dominated in 5 games.

Wright has recently been recalled to the NHL and netted his first NHL goal against the Canadiens, who passed on him with the #1 overall pick in this past draft.

Will roster for World Juniors needing to be finalized soon, the Kraken have made a decision on Wright's eligibility for the tournament.

Thanks to the House of Hockey, we now know that the Kraken have decided to loan Wright to Team Canada, according to Stephanie Leroux.

Team Canada's roster is loaded, and it is just going to be even better when they add Shane Wright to the list.
