Columbus Blue Jackets forward Max Domy, who formerly played for the Montreal Canadiens, may be part of the Seattle Kraken soon.
According to Darren Dreger, for TSN, you should at least leave Domi unprotected during the expansion draft.
The lists of players available for Kraken will be revealed this weekend once a league pass is obtained.
In Domy’s case, he still has a year to go under his current contract, with an impact of $5.3 million on payroll. He should become a free agent without compensation by the end of the 2021-2022 season.
In 54 games for the Bluejackets in the final season, Domy was limited to 24 points, including nine goals.
Held before Seattle to Volkov?
Striker Alexander Volkov signed a one-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday.
The Russian player’s agent, Dan Milstein, posted the news on Twitter. Volkov is expected to receive $925,000 and become a compensated free agent on July 28.
According to the specialist website CapFri Friendly, the 23-year-old meets all the requirements to not protect ducks in the expansion project. The right winger was selected for several weeks as the Anaheim FC player of the Seattle Kraken team.
The 2020-21 season was Volkov’s first full season in the National Hockey League, scoring 13 points in 37 games with the Tampa Bay Lightning and Ducks uniforms. He had changed the address in March in exchange for the appointment of Antoine Morand to Quebec.
The previous year, Volkov split his time between the Pittman Tour and the AHL, scoring one point in nine games with Lightning, and 30 points in 46 games with Syracuse Crunch. It was a former second-round pick (48th place) for “Bolts” at the 2017 auction.
