Shane Wright involved in a major trade if the Kraken decides to send him back to Kingston? The Frontenacs are reportedly planning to trade him to the OHL

As you know, clearly, Shane Wright is not off to the desired start of his career with the Seattle Kraken.

He is constantly left out by his head coach, and even when he does play, he spends less than seven minutes on the ice.

There is a lot of frustration with this issue, and there is now a real possibility that there will be a big turnaround and he will be sent to the junior ranks.

He needs to play hockey, and with 6:51 of ice time on average, that is clearly not enough.


According to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, if Wright were to return to the OHL, he would definitely be involved in a major trade.

The Kingston Frontenacs have applied to host the Memorial Cup in 2024 and are hoping to stock up on young players to be more competitive within the next two years. They don't need Wright this year, but they could trade him for a big price.

Here is Friedman's quote from his podcast:

"There is a way for the Kraken and the OHL to be proactive about this. Get Wright traded to a team that wants to win this season, where he will play big minutes in big games. The OHL would benefit as well. Wright would be a big draw. (One hitch: No player selected in the first round last season can be traded until January 1. My suggestion would be this: if the player agrees, make the deal.) Put Wright on the ice and reap the benefits. Now, and for many years to come in the Pacific Northwest."

Friedman adds that, if Wright is indeed sent back to Kingston, it's almost 100% certain he'll be traded.

Will Shane Wright be sent back to the junior ranks? Will he be traded for a multitude of draft picks?

It is certainly possible and something to watch closely.
