Seattle's Hockey Roots Run Deep

Seattle has a long and storied history with hockey. The city has been home to several professional and amateur hockey teams over the years, including the Seattle Metropolitans, who won the Stanley Cup in 1917. In recent years, Seattle has become a hotbed for youth hockey, with several youth hockey leagues and tournaments taking place in the city each year.

The city's passion for hockey has been evident in the years leading up to the Kraken's expansion. In 2013, a group of investors led by billionaire David Bonderman announced plans to bring an NHL team to Seattle. The group secured a lease for the city-owned KeyArena and began the process of securing an expansion fee from the NHL.

The NHL Takes Notice

The NHL had been considering expansion for several years, and Seattle was seen as a prime candidate for a new team. The city has a large and passionate hockey fan base, a strong economy, and a state-of-the-art arena. In 2018, the NHL announced that it would award an expansion team to Seattle, beginning play in the 2021-22 season.

The NHL's decision to expand to Seattle was a major victory for the city and its hockey fans. It marked the first time that an NHL team had been added to the United States since 2000, and it brought the number of NHL teams to 32.

The Kraken Emerge

The Kraken have been a competitive team from the start. They finished their inaugural season with a 27-43-12 record, which was good for sixth place in the Pacific Division. The team's success on the ice has helped to generate excitement among Seattle hockey fans, and the Kraken have quickly become one of the most popular teams in the NHL.
