SAN JOSE, California. -Seattle Kraken forward Shane Wright opened the scoring for him in his fourth game of the season on Monday, when he contributed to his club’s offensive effort in the first half against the San Jose Sharks.

The Kraken were already in control 2-1 at the end of the first period when Wright completed a magnificent exchange with veteran Jordan Eberle.

Seattle’s number 51 goal ultimately became the winning goal, given the final score of 4-2.

The fourth overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft provided a backhander for Eberle, who immediately returned the favor, at the net mouth.

Wright, who turned 20 in January, had not played a game on the Bettman Circuit since Nov. 13. For the occasion he played center for Eberle and Jaden Schwartz.

Jared McCann completed the scoring at 19:53 of the third period, when San Jose pulled out Blackwood with a sixth skater.

Philipp Grubauer automatically became part of the group led by Dave Hakstol. He made 25 saves in the victory.

McDavid, one point behind Kucherov and MacKinnon

Connor McDavid put on a show to ensure the Edmonton Oilers took a point off the St. Louis Blues who won 3-2 in overtime.
