Seattle had a pretty good expansion draft. The Owners of the team team decided to continue with the plan of rebuilding, so GM Terence wasted little time shopping 26 Year Old C. Alex Galchenyuk, 2nd & 5th round pick in 2022 to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for 26 Year Old LW. Charles Hudon and rights to newly drafted 19 Year Old C. Samuel Poulin.

Alex Galchenyuk being moved freed up 5M in the cap hit, allowing Seattle to be about 14M under the max team Salary Cap.
Pittsburgh is getting a more consistent player as he's had 5+ seasons of 40 or more point seasons and is reliable when healthy setting up players. If it wasn't enough, they also have pocket'd acouple draft picks.

Charles Hudon is coming off his career highs in goals and points after collecting 19 goals, 20 assists for 39 points in 69 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins. This also is a good pick up for Seattle as his price tag is 770K for this season.

Samuel Poulin being drafted #26 in the 2019 draft is a huge pick up for the Seattle team for future building. Samuel is coming off a huge season in the QMJHL in record breaking fashion across the board with the Sherbrooke Phoenix. In 54 games this past season, he had 33 goals, 57 assists for 90 points. This player could have a bright future and a really good chance to crack the roster of this new team.

Other Notes:
Seattle locked up a few of their unsigned draftees;
G. Chris Driedger - 2 YR, 650K per season
C. Reid Duke - 2 YR, 650K per season
G. MacKenzie Blackwood - 3 YR, 1.1M per season

Also Seattle matched 3 offers made by Minnesota;
RW. Ander Bjork - 3 YR, 2.28M per season
LW. Rudolfs Balcers - 3 YR, 1.98M per season

The following players below have decided to play in other leagues;

LD. Ryan Murray - 2 YR, 1.18M in the KHL
C. Adrian Kempe - 2 YR, 1.68M in the KHL
