The Seattle Kraken will begin filling out their expansion-year roster on Wednesday, and they will have some star power to help with the presentation.

The TV-friendly expansion draft, scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN2, is slated to include as presenters:

–Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner

–Former Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch

–Seattle Storm guard Sue Bird

–Seattle Mariners outfielder Kyle Lewis

–Seattle Sounders FC forward Jordan Morris

–Former Seattle SuperSonics stars Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp

–Former Sonics coach and GM Lenny Wilkens

Most of the appearances will come from a Seattle park at the north end of Lake Union, where a draft party crowd will be on hand.

Others expected to be in attendance are film producer Jerry Bruckheimer, a Kraken team co-owner; Seattle music star Macklemore; and Kraken scout Cammi Granato, who gained fame as an iconic women’s hockey player.

It was unclear how many Kraken selections would be in Seattle for the broadcast. The Vegas Golden Knights had four present during their expansion draft in 2017.
