Berkly Catton was Seattle’s eighth overall first-round pick in the 2024 entry-level draft and has shown a lot of promise for the Seattle Kraken organization since the start of Development Camp. On Friday, the final day of development camp, General Manager Ron Francis came out onto the ice to announce that Catton had agreed to terms on a three-year Entry Level Contract. Catton signed his contract on the ice in front of the crowd before the Stucky Cup tournament and, of course, tossed a fish to the crowd in true Seattle fashion.

Catton is an 18-year-old center and played for the Spokane Chiefs during the 2023-24 season. He had an impressive 116 points over 68 games (54 goals, 62 assists.) He is an incredibly manipulative player and can create openings wherever needed. Catton’s defining quality is his puck handling skills, along with his ability to shoot through a defender’s triangle.

Berkly Catton signed a three-year two-way entry-level deal at $877.5K with a signing bonus of $97.5K on Friday morning. Catton will likely start out with the Coachella Valley Firebirds in the 2024-25 season, but there is a good chance he will soon be seen in a Kraken jersey. Catton will bring a level of depth to both the Firebirds and the Kraken that both teams will benefit from.

I grew up in Seattle mostly following baseball as a kid and more recently got into hockey. Since then it’s been my favorite thing, I love the community surrounding it, the people it’s brought into my life, the opportunities and of course the game itself. When I’m not watching hockey I spend a lot of time outside with my dog and following all kinds of other sports!
