SEA ISLAND, Ga. | Seattle moves into next phase after expansion approval
SEA ISLAND, Ga.— Seattle’s NHL expansion team has its roots in Dave Tippett‘s computer.
That’s where the longtime coach-turned-senior adviser keeps a running list of players around the league who might be available in an expansion draft that is still 2 ½ years off. It is just an exercise for now but will become a key building block when Seattle picks its first players in June 2021.
“Every year it’ll change a little bit,” Tippett said.
