McCormick, who was named a Checkers alternate captain at the start of the year, finished the regular season with 29 points (13g, 16a) in 46 games for Charlotte while also appearing in 10 NHL contests for the Kraken.

“Max is a valuable part of the leadership group in Charlotte as they begin their playoff run,” said Seattle Kraken General Manager Ron Francis. “He impressed us with his play in Seattle and we are excited that he is returning to our organization for the next two years.”

The 30-year-old forward has totaled 197 points (92 goals, 105 assists) in 382 career AHL games - including 64 points (29g, 35a) in 102 games over two seasons with Charlotte.
