#8 Carl Hagelin
Carl Hagelin was brought on to the Caps from the Los Angeles Kings during the 2019 NHL trade deadline. The Caps liked his play and his effectiveness on the penalty kill that they decided to re up his contract that summer.
Hagelin had three goals and eight assists for 11 points in the final 20 games of the 2018-19 season. He followed that up by recording 25 points the next season with eight goals and 17 assists. Last season he finished with six goals and 10 assists for 16 points but was very effective on the Caps nearly perfect fourth line. The Kraken offense would benefit if they took any of the fourth liners.
Like Chara, Hagelin brings both veteran and Stanley Cup winning experience and the Kraken would benefit in that department. Hagelin had a 49.19 percent Corsi For percentage, a 53.45 percent Scoring Chances For percentage and a 56.46 High Danger Chances For percentage.
It is highly unlikely the Kraken would select him. They would probably select younger forwards maybe even someone from Washington’s fourth line that is one of the podcast bros. We hope not but no matter who we lose, it will either help or hurt us. But early leaks aren’t looking good…
