The Seattle Kraken brought in goaltender Martin Jones and defenseman Justin Schultz, the team announced Wednesday.

Schultz agreed to a two-year pact with an average annual value of $3 million, while Jones signed a one-year contract worth $2 million.

Jones guarded the crease for the Philadelphia Flyers in 2021-22. He authored a .900 save percentage and 3.42 goals against average to go along with a 12-18-3 record.

The 32-year-old owns a career 2.68 goals against average and a .907 save percentage across 396 showings. Jones has also suited up for the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks.

Schultz put up four goals and 19 assists in 74 games with the Washington Capitals while averaging almost 17 minutes per contest. He also chipped in with 40 hits and 87 blocks.

A second-round pick of the Anaheim Ducks in the 2008 draft, Schultz has 264 career points in 602 NHL games.

Jones won the Stanley Cup in 2014 as a member of the Kings, while Schultz claimed back-to-back titles with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2016 and 2017.
