Seattle’s NHL expansion team named the Kraken's Profile



The City of Seattle’s newest pro hockey team will be known as the Seattle Kraken.

The team released the ‘Kraken’ moniker on Thursday.

“The Kraken is a name born of the fans. It was suggested and championed by the fans,” said Seattle CEO Tod Leiweke.

The team chose the Scandinavian-inspired name over other popular options like the Sockeyes and Evergreens.

Others hoped to see the team go by the Metropolitans, a long-gone NHL team who actually won the Stanley Cup back in 1917.

They also unveiled their new team logo, a stylized letter ‘S,’ which is a nod to the Metropolians’ century-old logo.

It’s not clear what the team will use for a mascot, if anything. The Detroit Red Wings have historically used a large, but not kraken-sized, octopus named Al as their mascot.

The Seattle Kraken will take the ice for the first time in the 2021-2022 season.
