SEATTLE (AP) — Scouts for Seattle's expansion NHL franchise have become a common sight at arenas around the league. The scouts have collectively seen several hundred games already in their first season working for the franchise. They are building the database of information that will help the team make decisions for the expansion draft in June 2021. The scouts recently met in Seattle for the first time to go over their notes and evaluations. There will be plenty more meetings before the expansion draft arrives.
