Seattle Kraken make first signing, ink Luke Henman to 3-year deal

Whether he develops into a star or never plays a game at the highest level, Luke Henman will forever have a place in the history of the Seattle Kraken. The 21-year-old center became the first player ever signed by the Kraken on Wednesday when he inked a three-year entry-level contract with the expansion NHL club, which is set to begin its first season this fall. Henman is currently with the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada of the Québec Major Junior Hockey League. He will complete the season with the Armada — who are currently in the playoffs — before joining Seattle for its rookie training camp later this year.
