The Seattle Kraken acquired forward Victor Rask from the Minnesota Wild for future considerations.

The Wild will retain half of Rask's $4 million salary for the remainder of the season.

Rask was once a strong producer with the Carolina Hurricanes, highlighted by a career-high of 21 goals and 48 points in 2015-16. Seattle GM Ron Francis was the boss back then in Carolina, so he's familiar with Rask. 

So much so, that he signed Rask to a six-year contract worth $4 million in 2016, only for Rask to never find his footing before bouncing around teams. Rask has split the season between the NHL and AHL, recording five goals and 13 points in 29 games with the Wild and 10 points in as many games with Iowa.
