According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Freidman, the Seattle Kraken have signed former Washington Capitals defenseman Justin Schultz to a two-year contract that carries a cap hit around the $3 million range.
The 32-year-old, who is from Kelowna, British Columbia, earned four goals, 23 points, a -15 rating, 51.33% five-on-five Corsi-for percentage, 51.5% five-on-five expected goals-for percentage, and a 52.62% five-on-five scoring chances-for percentage in 74 regular-season games last season.
Schultz also earned one goal and three points in six Stanley Cup Playoff games.
Schultz tallied seven goals and 50 points in 120 career games with the Capitals and has 57 goals and 264 points in 602 career NHL games with the Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Edmonton Oilers.
Sounds like Justin Schultz to SEA, 2x$3M-ish
