Geekie, who was the only player on the last expansion team to avail himself of this right to arbitration, had seven goals and 20 points in 71 games during the Kraken's inaugural season.
"Morgan set several career highs last season and we are pleased to retain his services," general manager Ron Francis said in a statement. He took a big step forward last year and we hope he continues to grow with the Kraken.”
Selected in the expansion draft by the Kraken, Geekie was playing his first full season in the National Hockey League (NHL) after playing 38 games over two seasons with the Carolina Hurricanes.
