Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Not expected back against Leafs
Tanev (lower body) is slated to remain sidelined heading into Thursday's clash with Toronto, Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times reports.
Tanev was already on the shelf for 14 games earlier this season and is now poised to miss his second straight contest due to this current lower-body issue. Considering the Toronto native has managed a mere two points in eight outings this season, few fantasy players are likely to be impacted by his continued absence.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: Set to face Maple Leafs
Grubauer will patrol the visiting crease versus Toronto on Thursday, per Mark Masters of TSN.
Grubauer has struggled since signing with the Kraken three seasons ago, going 40-52-9 with an .889 save percentage. This season has been no different, as Grubauer is 5-7-0 with a 3.42 GAA and .881 save percentage. The Maple Leafs are 14th in NHL scoring, averaging 3.30 goals per contest.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Jaden Schwartz: Placed on injured reserve
Schwartz (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve Thursday, according to the NHL media site.
Schwartz was forced to leave Tuesday's tilt versus the Blackhawks after his first shift in the third period and did not return. Schwartz has eight goals and 15 points in 23 games this season, but he was pointless in his last five games.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Jared McCann: Nabs assist in loss
McCann notched an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Blackhawks.
McCann stole the puck at his own blue line, rushed into the zone, and then dropped a bank pass off the boards for Matty Beniers, who scored on his own rebound. The helper was McCann's fourth point over the last four games -- he seems to have steadied his play after a tough early half of the month. The 27-year-old is up to nine goals, five assists, 63 shots on net, 15 PIM and a minus-10 rating through 23 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: Allows four goals in road loss
Grubauer allowed four goals on just 23 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 road loss against the Blackhawks.
Grubauer was back in goal after dealing with an undisclosed injury, which forced him out for two games. He didn't have his best showing, allowing four even-strength goals. However, he was able to pick up the secondary assist on Alex Wennberg's shorthanded tally late in the first period for a little bit of a bonus. Grubauer and the Kraken will look to get back on track Thursday night against the Maple Leafs.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Adam Larsson: Sacrifices body in Tuesday's loss
Larsson posted an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 road loss against the Blackhawks.
Larsson had the primary apple on Wennberg's shorthanded goal in the second period. He ended up with two shots on goal while blocking three shots and adding a hit in a game-high 24:07 of ice time. After going scoreless in his first 13 games, and posting no goals and just two assists in the first 19 outings, Larsson has managed a marker and three points with a plus-2 rating across the past four contests....

Kraken's Alexander Wennberg: Connects for shorthanded goal
Wennberg scored a shorthanded goal in Tuesday's 4-3 road loss against the Blackhawks.
With Jared McCann in the penalty box for a hooking penalty late in the first period, Wennberg leveled the game at 2-2 with helpers from Adam Larsson and Philipp Grubauer. Wennberg finished with three shots on goal and a hit while winning five of his nine faceoff opportunities in 19:28 of ice time. The 29-year-old pivot has picked up the pace with three goals and six points across the past eight games, including two special teams points.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Tye Kartye: Light lamp in Chicago
Kartye scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-3 road loss against the Blackhawks.
Kartye finished with a plus-1 rating, four shots on goal, a blocked shot and a hit in 14:11 of ice time. The 22-year-old winger has scored goals in back-to-back games after going 14 contests without lighting the lamp. It's the first time in his NHL career that he has buried a goal in consecutive games. He'll look to make it three contests in a row with a marker as the road trip continues Thursday against the Maple Leafs.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Matty Beniers: Picks up two points in Chitown
Beniers supplied a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 road loss against the Blackhawks.

He also added a blocked shot, with a minor penalty and a hit in 20:03 of ice time -- the most for a forward in the game. Beniers has registered three goals and five points across the past six contests, as he continues to trend upward after a slow start, including going without a goal in October.... See More ...

Kraken's Jaden Schwartz: Hurt in Tuesday's game
Schwartz (lower body) won't finish Tuesday's game versus the Blackhawks, Alison Lukan of Root Sports reports.
Schwartz's point drought reached five games Tuesday when his night was ended early by the injury. The 31-year-old will likely be considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's contest in Toronto. If he can't play, Marian Studenic could draw into the lineup while Tye Kartye may see a larger role.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Good to go
Bjorkstrand (undisclosed) is expected to play in Tuesday's game versus the Blackhawks, per the NHL media site.
Bjorkstrand exited the Kraken's last game early, but it appears that was just a precaution. The 28-year-old winger should be back in his usual third-line role for this contest, as well as on the second power-play unit. He has a goal and six assists over his last six games.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Brandon Tanev: Won't play Tuesday
Tanev (lower body) won't play Tuesday against Chicago, Alison Lukan of Root Sports reports.
Tanev is listed as day-to-day after being injured in Friday's 5-1 loss to Vancouver. In eight outings this season, he has supplied two goals, 12 shots on net and 16 hits. Andrew Poturalski will replace Tanev in the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Philipp Grubauer: Returns to crease Tuesday

Kraken's Marian Studenic: Brought up to big club
Studenic was promoted from AHL Coachella Valley on Tuesday.
Studenic has likely been recalled to serve as an insurance policy in case Oliver Bjorkstrand (undisclosed) is unable to go Tuesday versus Chicago. Studenic has yet to appear in an NHL contest this year, but he's picked up six goals and 11 points through 15 AHL appearances.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Andrew Poturalski: Back in NHL
Poturalski was summoned from AHL Coachella Valley on Monday, according to Sound of Hockey.
Poturalski could be a potential replacement for Brandon Tanev (lower body), who didn't practice Saturday after leaving Friday's 5-1 loss to Vancouver. Oliver Bjorkstrand (undisclosed) was also unable to finish Friday's contest. Poturalski has not played in the NHL since the 2021-22 campaign, when he had two assists and four shots on goal with the Hurricanes over two games.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Chris Driedger: Dropped to AHL
Driedger was reassigned to AHL Coachella Valley on Saturday.
Driedger has served as Joey Daccord's backup for the last two games due to the absence of Philipp Grubauer (undisclosed). Driedger's demotion probably means that Grubauer will be available for Tuesday's contest against Chicago.... See More ... See Less
