Kraken take Bayreuther over Domi from Blue Jackets
Columbus left Domi unprotected over the weekend with the hope that the forward's injured shoulder would deter the Kraken from scooping him up. The 26-year-old underwent surgery to repair a labral tear in his right shoulder in June. With a recovery timetable of five to six months, Domi is likely to miss the start of the regular season, which is slated to start in October.
Bayreuther has just 28 games of NHL experience under his belt, registering six points. The 27-year-old signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Blue Jackets in 2020 and is a pending unrestricted free agent.
