The Seattle Kraken selected defender Jeremy Lauzon as their pick from the Bruins for their expansion draft, according to several reports — the first was Frank Seravelli of Daily Faceoff Hockey.
Curious to see who #SeaKraken wanted from the multitude of blueliners available from Boston with new assistant coach Jay Leach's insight.
Sounds like the pick from #NHLBruins will be Jeremy Lauzon.

Lauzon played 76 games with the Bruins in the span of three seasons, only tallying up 11 points in the process. He led the team in penalty minutes, while potting three goals.
The 24-year-old will look to add youth and an enforcer style of play to the Kraken.
The Bruins now sit at $26,739,326 in cap space if the Lauzon pick becomes official.
The B’s still have Taylor Hall, Tuukka Rask, and David Krecji as top free agents. With the expansion draft now done the Bruins can set focus on signing their upcoming free agents.
