  • Kraken's Chris Driedger: Reassigned to AHL

    Driedger was returned to AHL Coachella Valley on Tuesday.

  • Kraken's Chris Driedger: Bounced by Blueshirts

    Driedger turned aside 18 of 22 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.

    New York's final goal was scored into an empty net. Seattle never led in the game, and a Vincent Trocheck power-play tally midway through the first period on which he was left all alone at Driedger's back door for a tap-in set the tone. It was Driedger's first action since Dec. 27, and while the final result was mostly out of his hands, he'll likely continue to cede most of the work in the Kraken's crease to Joey Daccord.

  • Kraken's Chris Driedger: Starting against Rangers

    Driedger will guard the road goal Tuesday against the Rangers, per Kate Shefte of The Seattle Times.

    Driedger, who will make his second NHL start of the season, will get the second half of Seattle's back-to-back after Joey Daccord played in Monday's 3-0 loss to Pittsburgh. The 29-year-old Driedger made 37 saves in a 2-1 win over Calgary on Dec. 27 in his first NHL outing of 2023-24. The Rangers rank 14th in the league this campaign with 3.26 goals per contest.

  • Kraken's Chris Driedger: Stellar in win

    Driedger stopped 37 of 38 shots in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Flames.

    Driedger did everything asked of him and then some, quieting the Flames' offense. The 29-year-old hadn't played an NHL game since May 1, 2022, missing a large chunk of that time with an ACL injury. Joey Daccord has been excellent with Philipp Grubauer (lower body) out, but Driedger proved he can provide solid outings too. It's unclear how the Kraken's workload will be distributed going forward, with their next game coming back at home versus the Flyers on Friday.

  • Kraken's Chris Driedger: Put on waivers

    Driedger (knee) was placed on waivers by Seattle on Thursday, per Bob Condor of the Kraken's official site.

    Driedger, who was on the injured reserve list, hasn't played at all in 2022-23 because of a torn right ACL. If he clears waivers, he'll likely be sent to AHL Coachella Valley to get in some work. The 28-year-old posted a 9-14-1 record, 2.96 GAA and .899 save percentage in 27 contests last season. If any team wanted to claim Driedger, they'd be assuming his three-year, $10.5 million contract, which runs through the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Kraken's Chris Driedger: Undergoes ACL surgery

    Driedger has undergone surgery to repair a torn right ACL he suffered during the third period of Team Canada's Gold Medal match versus Finland during the IIHF World Championship and is expected to be sidelined for 7-9 months.

    Driedger will be sidelined for most of the 2022-23 campaign at a minimum, so the Kraken will undoubtedly be looking to add another netminder this offseason. The 28-year-old netminder went 9-14-1 while posting a 2.96 GAA and an .899 save percentage through 27 appearances with Seattle in 2021-22.

He's expected to reprise his role as the backup to Philipp Grubauer in the franchise's second season.
