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.

MacDermid is originally from Sauble Beach, Ontario.
