The Seattle Kraken has a brief history, but it has already hired its second coach to lead the organization. Dan Bylsma is back in the NHL.

He was the head coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins, with whom he won the Stanley Cup in 2009, and then with the Buffalo Sabres until 2016-2017, but he has not been a head coach in the NHL since then.

Dan Bylsma took a step back to coach in the American Hockey League for the past two seasons before getting a new opportunity in the National Hockey League.

The Kraken fired Dave Hakstol after a disappointing season, and hockey boss Ron Francis wanted a new voice and philosophy with his young team.
