Wright was assigned to the Firebirds by their NHL parent team, the Seattle Kraken, on a conditioning loan Sunday. A conditioning loan allows a player to participate in the American Hockey League for a maximum of five games and/or 14 days.

Wright was a healthy scratch in nine of Seattle's 11 games since Oct. 25. The 18-year-old center played in five of the Kraken's first seven games, recording one assist.
