Seattle Kraken backstory

• Seattle was granted an NHL expansion franchise in December 2018, making the team the 32nd in the league following the addition of the Las Vegas Golden Knights in 2017.

• The team will play in a new arena under the iconic roof of the former KeyArena and Seattle Coliseum on the grounds of the Seattle Center, just a stone’s throw from the Space Needle.

• The arena naming rights have been bought by Amazon, opting to call it Climate Pledge Arena.

• The Seattle Kraken is set to begin play in the NHL in the 2021-22 season.

• A training facility is being built for the team in Northgate and will feature public rinks in the hopes of building the game of hockey in the Seattle area.
