Yanni Gourde has been chosen by Seattle from the Tampa Bay Lightning in the expansion draft.
Analysis: Gourde's contract carries an average annual value of $5,166,666 for the next four seasons. Tampa Bay was likely to lose a strong forward in the expansion draft and Gourde will be difficult to replace. He has been excellent on the team's third line during the team's past two Stanley Cup championships. The 29-year-old forward accounted for 17 goals and 36 points in 56 games last season. Gourde had 25 goals and 64 points over 82 matches in 2017-18.
