The Seattle Kraken have officially drafted Rangers C Colin Blackwell in the NHL Expansion Draft.

But there could be a twist.

Mollie Walker of the New York Post reported earlier on Wednesday that the Kraken have interest in trading for Ryan Strome, and would be willing to take on some of Mark Giordano's salary to make a deal work.

In theory, Blackwell could be traded back to the Rangers to make a trade happen.

In his first year with the Rangers last season, Blackwell totaled 22 points (12 goals, 10 assists) while posting a plus-2 mark.
