Matthew Beniers scored a goal on Monday in a 4-2 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Fantasy Impact: The Matty Beniers era has begun in Seattle! The second overall pick in last year's draft now has three points (2 goals, 1 assist) in his first three games in the National Hockey League. The University of Michigan product is coming off a big season in the NCAA and has not missed a beat in his transition to the NHL. Beniers will certainly have a lot of value in re-draft next year and congratulations if you roster him in dynasty.

Per Chris Johnston on Twitter, the Seattle Kraken are sending forward Marcus Johansson to the Washington Capitals. The return is a 2022 fourth-rounder, 2023 sixth-rounder, and forward Daniel Sprong. The Kraken are also retaining 50% of Johansson’s contract.

Fantasy Impact: It remains to be seen where Johansson fits in the Capitals lineup. With Carl Hagelin out on long term injured reserve, the natural thought would be on the wing for the Capital’s fourth line. The veteran winger was solid in his previous stint in D.C. from 2010-2017. Fantasy managers will want to wait to see exactly what line he plays on for the Capitals, and if he gets any power play time.

Former Seattle Kraken defenseman Jeremy Lauzon was traded to the Nashville Predators for a 2022 second-round pick. Lauzon, just 24, was initially selected in the 2021 NHL Expansion Draft by Seattle from the Boston Bruins. Lauzon will be a restricted free-agent (RFA) following the conclusion of the 2021-2022 season. (Source: Pierre LeBrun on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lauzon has just six points in 53 games this season with the Kraken, and appears to be a depth move for the Predators. He doesn't merit roster consideration as of this moment. Seattle continues their firesale, attempting to remake their core for the future.

The Calgary Flames acquired forward Calle Jarnkrok from the Seattle Kraken in exchange for a second-round pick in 2022, a third-round pick in 2023, and a seventh-round pick in 2024. (Source: NHL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Jarnkrok is having a decent season with 26 points (12 goals, 14 assists) in 49 games on a struggling Seattle Kraken team. The fantasy impact is difficult to predict for managers because Jarnkrok will likely see a reduction in ice time but an increase in talent around him with the Flames. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on the situation in Calgary and Jarnkrok may be worth a speculative add.
