MacDermid, 27, is a defenseman who has played in 118 games in his NHL career.
Seattle had selected MacDermid from the Los Angeles Kings in the NHL Expansion Draft. They had some fun with their announcement on Twitter, writing “It’s been a blast, Kurtis. We’ll never forget you.” and Photoshopping a Kraken logo on top of MacDermid’s jersey.
