REPORT: Fans PISSED after how Kraken used Shane Wright in his FIRST game last night

For years, Shane Wright was the projected first overall pick, but surprisingly he fell to 4th in the draft after the Canadiens, Devils and Coyotes all passed on him, then the Seattle Kraken were more than happy to swipe him up with their 4th selection.

In the Kraken's first season in the NHL last year, they finished 3rd last in the league, but the team made some major moves in the offseason and were hoping that they would see a huge improvement this year.

Last night the Kraken played their first game on the season, but unfortunately it was a 5-4 overtime loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Waking up this morning though, the talk about this game isn't about the loss, it's all about top prospect Shane Wright and how he was treated by the team last night.

To start the game, they had this prospect centering the 4th line between Donato-and Kuhlman, not a place where you want a prize prospect to be playing. People figured he would just be there to start the game and move his way up as the game goes along, but then it was revealed just how little he actually played.

Of all the players to make their NHL debuts last night, he played almost half of what the second lowest player total was:

Fans were not happy about this and are now questioning the Krakens development system:

They even brought into question the coach, is he not good with young players?
