There aren’t any with a “Carey Price” name affixed to them – at least not yet – but the Seattle Kraken does plan to unveil the team’s home and away sweaters as Wednesday’s NHL expansion draft unfolds.

The team on Monday released a photograph of the jersey in its dark home colors. It also revealed that newly selected Kraken players Wednesday will indeed wear both versions of the Adidas sweater – or jersey, in non-hockey parlance – when their names are called.

Kraken CEO Tod Leiweke said last month that the team was working fervently to overcome logistical issues related to COVID-19 so that at least some sweaters would be ready for players to wear. The manufacturing process took place overseas, so shipping delays were a factor.

But the Kraken now has those sweaters and plans to make others available for public sale Sept. 15 at the team’s retail outlets in and around Seattle – at the Kraken Community Iceplex practice facility, Chandler’s Cove and the Bellevue Square Mall.

Also, the team plans a membership program in August – details of which have yet to be announced – that will open up presale opportunities for fans.

Whether any eventually bear the name of Montreal Canadiens star goalie Price – the former Tri-City Americans netminder who was left exposed to the Kraken for the draft – remains to be seen.
