NHL rejects Seattle Kraken's deal with goaltender Philipp Grubauer, noting violation of front-loaded contract rules, source says




The contract was rejected by the NHL's central registry because it violated the league's requirements for a front-loaded contract. According to CapFriendly, which first reported the rejection, the $1.5 million variance in salary from 2022-23 ($6 million) to 2023-24 ($7.5 million) exceeds 25% of the first-year salary on the contract ($5 million).


The contract will have to be restructured and resubmitted to the NHL for approval. The Seattle Times reported Sunday that the Kraken have already done so, taking $250,000 from the third year and adding it to the second year, pending the league's review.
