The Seattle Kraken have signed veteran goaltender Martin Jones to a one-year deal worth $2 million.

Jones is coming off a year with Philadelphia where he posted a 12-18-3 record in 35 games. 

Jones is far from the starting goalie he was in San Jose, and his end days with the club were ugly, to say the least. At 32, the big goaltender is on a heavy decline, but the Kraken believe he can get the job done. If you can limit his playing him, you can get some value in him in bursts.

The Kraken already has Philip Grubauer and Chris Driedger under contract, so look for Seattle to make some noise on the trade market.
