July 21 (UPI) -- The Seattle Kraken assembled their roster in Wednesday night's expansion draft, selecting former NHL All-Star Mark Giordano and star winger Jordan Eberle to lead their club.

Giordano, a Norris Trophy winner and longtime Calgary Flames captain, and Eberle were two of the Kraken's most notable additions. St. Louis Blues defenseman Vince Dunn and Tampa Bay Lightning forward Yanni Gourde also are headed to Seattle and will bring championship experience.

In total, the Kraken selected 15 forwards, 12 defensemen and three goaltenders in the expansion draft from 30 teams -- the Vegas Golden Knights weren't required to expose players due to their recent entry in the NHL.

Along with player selections, the Kraken's regular-season and home openers were revealed. Seattle will face the NHL's second-newest franchise, the Golden Knights, on the road Oct. 12 before hosting the Vancouver Canucks on Oct. 23.
