Free agency opened up on Saturday morning, 9am PT, with the Seattle Kraken undergoing a transformation of their roster. 

How far that transformation goes is a matter of time. General manager Ron Francis hinted at a much lighter summer this year, due to the amount of contracts in place held by players who orchestrated an NHL record point and win turnaround, en route to a Stanley Cup Playoff berth. 

Here’s a look at the timeline, updated as moves come in, both team entries and exits.
