Expansion Seattle Kraken hire Dave Hakstol as first coach

Through all the speculation, rumors, leaks and educated guesses that came with the search for the Seattle Kraken’s first coach, the name Dave Hakstol never surfaced. Hakstol’s name didn’t come up until he was announced as the Kraken’s leader Thursday. “On our end we just had the conversations, we talked about things and I think a lot of that credit goes to Dave,” general manager Ron Francis said.
