Friday-First Buyout Period Begins 17 – Deadline for Protection Lists for Expansion Draft 21 – Expansion Draft for Seattle Kraken 23 – Round 1 of NHL Draft 24 – Rounds 2-7 of NHL Draft 28 – Free Agent signing begins
Unless Lamoriello gets very creative, Eberle, Leddy, Bellows seem most likely players Seattle could claim, but Leddy entering final year of his contract may be a poor choice because he can go elsewhere.
