Seattle will drop the puck for its expansion team next year, and the team now has a name. The team will be called the Kraken and will begin play in the 2021-2022 season.

The name and logos were developed in part based on the city’s location near the Pugent Sound. The S is meant to reflect the old Seattle Metropolitans teams, while the secondary anchor logo reflects the sea-going ways of the city. The colors are meant to reflect Pugent Sound.
