For 2 years now, we knew that there was going to be a hockey team in Seattle. The city of Seattle announced in 2018 that they will be getting a professional hockey team, to be the NHL'S 32nd team. Thursday, they came out with a name, their jerseys, arena, logo, colors, and more!
Now we know that the 32nd National Hockey League team will be called the ''Seattle Krakens''. Early Thursday morning the team leaked their logo, jerseys and more, and here's how they look!
The Seattle Kraken will play in Seattle at ''Climate Pledge Arena'' starting in the 2021-2022 season. After having up to 1,200 different name options they finally went with the ''Kraken''. Seattle Kraken's CEO said ''we considered everything. And many of the names had plusses and minuses. But at the end of the day, like an endearing friend, this name just kept hanging in there.
The Kraken will enter the league in the 2021-2022 season having their expansion draft June of 2021. Personally, what I like most about this team is their colors and jerseys. They look very cool and clean and I'm really looking forward to them entering the league in the 2021-2022 season! The Kraken will be part of the leagues Pacific Division, finally balancing the conferences at 16 teams each!
