Forever tied to Seattle Kraken history after scoring the team's first-ever goal in the National Hockey League (NHL), Ryan Donato signed a new season-long pact on Wednesday.

The forward will therefore receive $1.2 million for the 2022-2023 campaign.
Donato is coming off his career-best campaign with 16 goals and 31 points. The 26-year-old American had accepted a first pact with the club as a free agent last summer.
"Ryan upped his game last season and we are happy to have him return to the Kraken," general manager Ron Francis said in a statement. He just finished his best campaign of his career, and we hope he will eclipse it in 2022-2023.
Selected by the Boston Bruins in the second round of the 2014 draft, Donato totaled 51 goals and 108 points in 254 games with them, the Minnesota Wild, the San Jose Sharks and the Kraken.
