Tonight’s game will mark the ninth of 13 games the Kraken will play against Original Six teams this season. They will play the Boston Bruins, Detroit
Red Wings, Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs twice each this season and the Chicago Blackhawks three times.
Jared McCann is the only former Maple Leaf on the Kraken’s roster. However, McCann was a member of the Maple Leafs organization for only four
days – he was traded from Pittsburgh to Toronto on July 17, 2021 and then selected by Seattle in the Expansion Draft of July, 2021.
Kraken Head Coach Dave Hakstol and assistant coach Paul McFarland both previously worked as assistant coaches for the Maple Leafs. General
Manager Ron Francis and assistant general manager Ricky Olczyk both also have ties to Toronto – Francis played for the Maple Leafs for part of the
2003-04 season and Olczyk worked as a scout for the team during the 2018-19 season.
An assist tonight would give Adam Larsson assists in three consecutive games for the first time since he had five assists in three games from Feb. 20
to 23, 2015.
The Kraken have recorded at least 30 shots in their last four games played, a season high.
Kraken captain Mark Giordano became the 364th player in NHL history to skate in 1,000 NHL games in the Kraken’s game on March 5 at Washington.
Marcus Johansson enters tonight’s game two points shy of tallying 400 NHL points. There are currently only 11 skaters from the 2009 NHL Draft class
and 12 active Swedish players to have 400 points.
Jordan Eberle recorded an assist in the Kraken’s game on Feb. 21 for his 30th point of the season. Eberle has scored at least 30 points in each of his
12 NHL seasons.

Mason Appleton has four points (one goal, three assists) in his last four games against the Maple Leafs.
Jordan Eberle has 23 points (12 goals, 11 assists) in 20 career games against Toronto.
Jaden Schwartz has 12 points (three goals, nine assists) in 11 career games against the Maple Leafs. Toronto is one of five teams (Boston, Buffalo,
Edmonton, Washington) that Schwartz has averaged a point-per-game or better against in his career.
Alex Wennberg has five points (two goals, three assists) in his last five games in Toronto.

Jared McCann enters tonight’s game leading the Kraken in goals (21), points (33), even-strength goals (14), power-play goals (seven), power-play
points (12) and multi-point games (eight). His 33 points are just two shy of matching his career high of 35 that he had in both 2018-19 and 2019-20.
McCann scored his 20th goal of the season in the Kraken’s game on Feb. 14 vs. Toronto, setting a new career high. The goal also tied his career high
in power-play goals (seven) that he first set during the 2020-21 season.
McCann’s 21 goals are the most among players who are in their first year with a new team.
McCann’s two-point performance (one goal, one assist) against the New York Islanders on Feb. 2 was his eighth multi-point game of the year, which
leads all Kraken skaters.
Despite only playing in 47 games this season, McCann’s eight multi-point games the most in his career. He previously had a career-high seven multipoint games during the 2018-19 season.
McCann tallied his 100th NHL assist on Feb. 2 against the New York Islanders, becoming the 14th skater from the 2014 draft class to reach this

Calle Jarnkrok had two points (one goal, one assist) in the Kraken’s last game on March 6 at Carolina, marking his fifth multi-point game of the
Despite only playing in 46 games this season, Jarnkrok is only one multi-point game shy of tying his career high of six that he set during the 2016-17
season and then matched in both 2017-18 and 2019-20.
Jarnkrok’s goal on Feb. 9 at Calgary was his 10th of the year. It is the seventh-consecutive season that he has scored double-digit goals.
He enters tonight’s game one power-play goal shy of matching his career high (three).
Since Dec. 1, Jarnkrok has recorded 23 points (11 goals, 12 assists) in 32 games played, which leads all Kraken skaters.
With 25 points (12 goals, 13 assists) in 46 games this season, the 30-year-old is on pace to finish the year with 18 goals, 20 assists and 38 points, all of
which would set new career highs. His 12 goals this season are tied with Yanni Gourde for the third-most on the team.
Colin Blackwell has tallied three points (two goals, one assist) in the Kraken’s last three games, including scoring his first game-winning goal of the
season in Seattle’s win over Nashville on March 2.
Blackwell’s game-winner on March 2 was also the first shorthanded goal in his career.
Since Feb. 24, Blackwell and linemates Mason Appleton and Yanni Gourde have played 52:40 at five-on-five together. During that span, the duo
has outshot their opponents 25-23 and outscored them 2-1.*

Morgan Geekie has already set new career highs in goals (four), assists (10) and points (14) this season. He is on pace to finish the year with six
