BREAKING: Kraken wrap first trade deadline acquiring Victor Rask, claiming Derrick Pouliot

  

The Seattle Kraken made their last deadline move just as the deadline struck zero on Monday afternoon. Seattle acquired forward Victor Rask from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for future considerations. As part of the deal, Minnesota will retain 50% of Rask’s cap hit.

Rask was immediately assigned to Charlotte to join the Kraken’s AHL affiliate. On the outside, this looks like a depth deal, but it is mainly a salary cap deal to give the Wild some cap breathing room.

Rask just turned 29 on March 1 and has appeared in almost 500 NHL games between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Wild. The Swedish-born forward has put up 215 points (85 goals, 130 assists) in his eight-year NHL career. He is in the last year of a six-year contract with a $4 million cap hit.

In another small transaction, the Kraken claimed defenseman Derrick Pouliot off waivers from the Vegas Golden Knights to fill some lineup spots left open by trade deadline deals. Pouliot signed a one-year deal with the Golden Knights on March 17, and was put on waivers to be sent to their AHL affiliate, the Henderson Silver Knights, after playing two games with the Golden Knights.

He has appeared in over 200 NHL games with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Vancouver Canucks and Golden Knights and has 49 career points (eight goals, 41 assists).
