NHL Seattle drops hint of (team name?) announcement

NHL Seattle posted on Twitter a hint about an announcement on Thursday morning, and the internet is overwhelmingly assuming it’s about a team name.

However, The Seattle Times reported last month that a name wasn’t likely until at least fall.

Wednesday’s clue appeared in the form of a video featuring three people on a fishing boat in the middle of the bay pulling up the day’s catch. In the net is a red light. As two people are examining the light, a Washington state ferry blows its horn in the background and the light flashes a few times. Some dramatic music plays and the end graphic reads, “tomorrow.”

Of course, Seattleites are guessing that this is a hint as to the team’s new name, which we’ve all been waiting for. Not only is the entire region now giddy with excitement, but they’re also reviewing, once again, the list of name possibilities.

Likewise, hockey fans are probably also Googling or asking Alexa about ferry horns, buoy lights, fishing fear, flashing lights, etc. The best we could do on that front is learn that boats often have sidelights, some of which are red. Seattle Sidelights? There are sometimes lights on buoys. Seattle Buoys? One long blast from the ferry indicates warning about a blind corner or obstructed area. Seattle Confusion?

Either way, it’s possible that we’ll finally have a new team name for Seattle’s hockey team at 9 a.m. Thursday.
