The Seattle Kraken began fillings up their roster for the team’s inaugural NHL campaign on Wednesday night with the 2021 NHL Expansion Draft.

The Kraken were joined by a number of former star athletes — including Marshawn Lynch, Sue Bird, Shawn Kemp, and Gary Payton — from the city for the ESPN broadcast as the 30 picks were announced.

The biggest name on the inaugural roster is Mark Giordano, who was selected from the Calgary Flames, Vince Dunn, Jamie Oleksiak, Brandon Tanev, and Adam Larsson.
