Good morning, Preds fans!

Thanks to Twitter, many Seattle Kraken draft picks are leaking prior to tonight’s live expansion draft (at 7 PM Central).

We’ve started a live thread with updates as we’re seeing them...

Seattle has come to terms with Adam Larsson and Jamie Oleksiak:

Carey Price remains part of the Montreal Canadiens:

Gabriel Landeskog remains a UFA...

Toronto traded for McCann, exposed him, and now he’s a Kraken:

The goalie selections will include Joey Daccord from Ottawa:

...And Vitek Vanecek from Washington and Chris Driedger from the Panthers:

Mark Giordano, Calgary Flames captain, is a Kraken:

Meanwhile, here’s the news we all expected:

Jordan Eberle from the Islanders is now a Kraken:

And from Winnipeg, Mason Appleton (and a JFreshHockey chart):

Hmmm, Morgan Geekie from Carolina:

And...Joonas Donskoi from the Avs:

A surprise from Columbus:

Here’s another JFreshHockey card for New Jersey’s pick:

Tyler Pitlick from Dallas:

Me, being dumb, forgot Joonas Donskoi was with the Avs (now Seattle) and not San Jose. Here’s San Jose’s choice:

As of 12:30 Central, we are missing information for the Penguins, Blackhawks, Sabres, Red Wings, and Lightning.

As of 12:31 Central:

From Chicagoland:
