Kraken Place Forward On Waivers

Published May 16, 2023 at 4:14 PM

The Seattle Kraken had their sophomore season end in heart break because of a 2-1 Game 7 loss against the Dallas Stars.

The NHL season might be over but that didn't stop management from making a move, placing 28 year old forward Jesper Froden on waivers. If he clears tomorrow, the move will allow him to join their AHL affiliate, the Coachella Valley Firebirds, as they look to advance to the Western Conference Final of this year's Calder Cup Playoffs. Game 4 is on Wednesday.

Froden played in 14 NHL games during the 2022-2023 season recording 4 assists. Froden got to play in one playoff game against the Colorado Avalanche in Game 4 of the team's first-round series, playing just over four minutes.

In 44 AHL games Froden scored 25 goals and 47 points. An undrafted free agent, Frödén had signed with the Kraken this season after a strong first professional campaign in the Boston Bruins organization last year.
