A major rumor is now confirmed for the fourth overall pick in the 2022 draft, Shane Wright, who has finally received a new opportunity to prove himself.

Indeed, the 20-year-old forward has received the long-awaited call-up from the Seattle Kraken to join the main club.

This strong possibility had been circulating within the organization for a few days, and now it has officially happened.

«The team from the state of Washington rewards the young 20-year-old forward. With the Coachella Valley Firebirds, the Kraken's AHL affiliate, Wright has collected 11 points in the last 12 games for a total of 20 goals and 23 assists for 43 points in 56 games this season.» - TVA Sports



Since the start of the year, Wright has played only three games in the NHL, under conditions not conducive to getting a real chance to establish himself permanently with the Kraken.

Given that playoff hopes are dim for the team, it's hoped that they will allow Wright to play significant minutes so he can finally showcase his abilities without fear of being sent back to the minors at the first opportunity.

In 11 career games in the NHL, he totals one goal and two points.
