The Seattle Kraken revealed their mascot Saturday evening during a preseason game. Buoy the Troll has left people appalled and wondering why they didn’t go with something like, oh, I don’t know a Kraken.

Apparently there’s a whole backstory on the new Seattle Kraken mascot. The Golden Knights mascot, Chance the Gila Monster, is far better than Buoy, in my opinion.

Cuts: The Golden Knights have made their second batch of roster cuts. Here’s the full list of every player sent down to the Henderson Silver Knights and to their respective junior teams.

Sheldon Rempal, Byron Froese, Brayden Pachal, and Michael Hutchinson have cleared waivers.

TSN: Jack Eichel has cracked TSN’s top-50 player rankings. He’s number 35. Too low, in my opinion.

Free Agency: The Golden Knights signed development camp walk-on Joe Fleming to a three-year entry-level contract. He’s the definition of a bruiser and an all-around fun player to watch.

The Golden Knights have eight players entering contract years in 2022-23, including Phil Kessel.
