The Seattle Kraken signed unrestricted free-agent forward Ryan Donato to a one-year contract worth $1.2 million, the team announced Wednesday.

Donato, 26, scored a career-high 16 goals in 74 games last season, adding 15 assists while averaging nearly 14 minutes of ice time per contest. The Massachusetts native joined the Kraken on a one-year, $750,000 deal last offseason after previously suiting up for the San Jose Sharks, Minnesota Wild, and Boston Bruins.

"Ryan elevated his game last season, and we're happy to have him return to the Kraken," general manager Ron Francis said. "He completed a career year and will hopefully eclipse that in 2022-23."

Seattle has made a collection of moves to bolster its offense this summer, adding Andre Burakovsky and Oliver Bjorkstrand while drafting Shane Wright fourth overall.
