NHL.com's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.
The latest edition features Robert Kron, whom the Seattle Kraken announced as their director of amateur scouting Oct. 30. Kron played 12 seasons as a forward in the NHL from 1990-2002, scoring 338 points (144 goals, 194 assists) in 771 games for the Vancouver Canucks, Hartford Whalers, Carolina Hurricanes and Columbus Blue Jackets. He spent 12 seasons as an amateur scout with the Hurricanes from 2008-2020, rising to director of European scouting last year. Now he will help build the newest NHL expansion team, which will participate in its first amateur draft next year before beginning play in the 2021-22 season.
