Karson Kuhlman is on the move once again as the former Bruins forward hit the waiver wire as his time in Seattle has come to an end.
Kuhlman now finds himself in a similar spot 11 months later as he was once again placed on waivers. The 27-year-old was placed on waivers Monday by Seattle, and all of the other 31 NHL teams had until 2 pm EST yesterday to make a claim. As first reported by Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, that’s what has occurred:
Even in Seattle, Kuhlman has had issues finding consistent playing time as he hasn’t been able to carve out a role. On the season, he has recorded one goal and two assists in 14 games and has just been underwhelming. Luckily the young forward now has a chance to continue his career in Winnipeg where he will look to once again be a role player on a team that is currently leading the Central Division.
Originally undrafted, he signed a two-year, $1,525,000 contract with the Boston Bruins in 2018 after four years at the University of Minnesota Duluth.
During his time in Boston, he skated in 75 games, recording seven goals and eight assists. With the Providence Bruins of the AHL, he registered 19 goals and 20 assists in 74 games. He was claimed off waivers from the Bruins by the Seattle Kraken on January 17th, 2022.
