Kraken reassign 1st round pick Shane Wright to juniors

SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Kraken have reassigned first-round draft pick Shane Wright to the Kingston Frontenacs of the Ontario Hockey League after Wright helped Canada to a world juniors title. The 19-year-old Wright appeared in eight games with Seattle this season. But he will play the rest of the year at the juniors level. Wright was the No. 4 overall pick in last summer’s draft, falling to the Kraken after he was expected to be one of the top two selections entering the draft. He had one goal and one assist in his eight games.
