SEATTLE (AP) After winning two straight Stanley Cup titles, Yanni Gourde has one of the more impressive resumes among the players selected by the Seattle Kraken in the NHL expansion draft.

But instead of being one of Seattle's top forwards to start the team's first season, Gourde is going to be stuck as a spectator when the puck finally drops after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

"It's been a complicated situation because it's been bugging me for over 18 months. There's a lot of stuff in that left shoulder that didn't work right and everything was caused by the labrum tear," Gourde said Tuesday. "We kind of found that out when I went to see the doctor for surgery and that's what came out of it."
