Calgary Flames acquire forward Calle Jarnkrok from Seattle Kraken


The Calgary Flames have acquired forward Calle Jarnkrok from the Seattle Kraken, Daily face-to-face Frank Seravalli reported on Wednesday.

As Seravalli noted, the Flames are giving up a 2nd-round pick belonging to

Florida in the 2022 draft, a 3rd-round pick in 2023 and a 7th-round pick in 2024. Seattle keeps 50% of Jarnkrok’s $2 million contract salary that expires at the end of this year.

The 7th round pick was included for the Kraken to keep the salary.

He was listed as the 11th player on Seravalli’s list of trade targets.

« Jarnkrok, the former Predator, delivered Seattle one of the top picks in the Kraken expansion draft, » Seravalli said. « Jarnkrok pretty much checks all the boxes for a contender as a deadline trading token: he’s strong at forechecking, he’s productive, he offers great lineup flexibility as he can play center or wing, and its salary cap is inexpensive. »

Drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in the second round of the 2010 draft, Jarnkrok never played for the club before being traded to the Nashville Predators. He spent eight seasons with the Predators before being selected by the Kraken in their expansion draft.

He continued to play in a midfield role with the Kraken scoring 12 goals and 26 points in 49 games.

With him on the ice at 5×5 this year, the Kraken have controlled 48.15% of shot attempts, 43.1% of goals scored, and 45.66% of expected goal share. He also has an 89.07 ice save percentage.
