Kraken sign Tolvanen to 2-year contract

The Seattle Kraken signed restricted free-agent forward Eeli Tolvanen to a two-year contract.

General manager Ron Francis made the announcement during a development camp scrimmage Friday.

The contract carries an average annual value of $3.475 million, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

Tolvanen’s previous contract, signed with the Nashville Predators in 2021, paid him $1.45 million per season.

The Kraken claimed Tolvanen off waivers in December 2022. The 25-year-old set career highs in goals (16), points (41), and average ice time (15:39) this past season.

Seattle’s final RFA is 2023 Calder Trophy winner Matty Beniers.
