Angela Reveals She Really Thought They We're Headed to Seattle

Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens was notably absent from the protected list for the Seattle Kraken expansion draft. Owing to his lucrative contract, management believed he would leave the Habs, so they chose to protect Jake Allen.

Price's wife Angela believed her family was moving to Seattle, despite mixed fan reaction.

That we wanted to leave Montreal broke Angela's heart. But then Carey's agent called to say that Seattle wasn't too concerned about his injury and that he might be picked up.» My next two days were spent on Twitter, reading and over-analyzing everything. Then I started mentally preparing and even talking about our trip to Seattle. If it happened.»

They chose instead Chris Driedger, Vitek Vanecek and Joey Daccord as netminders, and later signed free agent Philipp Grubauer. Vanecek was re-acquired.

Despite Angela's desire to live in Seattle, where she is closer to friends and family, her family has chosen to settle in Montreal.

«I knew it, but it didn't feel right. What Carey did baffled me. My heart is with the Canadiens organisation even though playing in Seattle would be a lot easier.
