The Chicago Blackhawks were in a pretty good position when it came to the Seattle Kraken expansion draft as they didn't have to leave any crazy names unprotected.
Regardless of the Kraken's pick, Nikita Zadarov seemed to be the only one that would hurt but as a soon to be UFA there was no guarantee he would be back anyways.
A couple of hours before the expansion draft is official, some of the picks have been revealed including the Hawks' player leaving to Seattle.
According to multiple reports, John Quenneville will be the player headed to the Seattle Kraken.
More details to come.
What do you think of the Kraken's choice?
Can confirm this pick from Chicago by Seattle, if it hasn't been already. https://t.co/TQispzRopo
