In the past few minutes, it has been announced that the Seattle Kraken will confirm the hiring of Dan Bylsma, a name Shane Wright knows well.

It's funny sometimes how things turn out.
A few months after the 2022 NHL Draft, it was reported that young Shane Wright disrespected the head coach of the Kraken's farm team (Dan Bylsma).
He was acting like a young player frustrated to be in the AHL and was a bit grumpy.
Details at the bottom of the article.
Well today, that same Dan Bylsma has just been named the head coach of the big club! Oops.
«The Seattle Kraken set to introduce 2009 Stanley Cup-winning coach Dan Bylsma as the second head coach in their history on Tuesday.

Bylsma has coached 7 full seasons and has held two head coaching positions in the NHL.» - Frank Seravalli

«The Kraken will make a special announcement tomorrow around 10:30 AM (Pacific Time).

Media wishing to attend can find more information in their inbox or contact the Kraken's public relations department.» - Seattle Kraken

So, it will be announced tomorrow morning.

Shane Wright has already shown attitude towards Dan Bylsma, who is now the head coach of the Seattle Kraken

One imagines that this story is in the past between Bylsma and young Shane Wright, but the player who was passed over by the Montreal Canadiens with the first overall pick in 2022 must certainly regret this incident.
Reminder of the facts:
«I was watching a podcast with a Seattle journalist, and it seems that a few times on the ice during practices, he [Shane Wright] threw tantrums towards the AHL coaches.

It worried him. At one point, Dan Bylsma gave an instruction, and he looked at him as if to say: ‘What is this!?'. It's a bit worrying. It comes off as prima donna! I'm giving you both sides of the story, but the guy on the podcast tore him apart!» - Mathias Brunet

This is a statement that journalist Mathias Brunet made at the time on BPM Sports.
Wright, 20 years old, fourth overall pick in 2022, has scored 7 points in 16 career NHL games so far. He has recorded 47 points in 59 games this season in the American Hockey League.
