The team will officially join the league for the 2021-2022 season, playing their games at Climate Pledge Arena, a zero-carbon venue and the first of its kind.


Yesterday’s video tease had EVERYONE speculating – the Sockeys, the Steelheads, but alas it is The Kraken!


We are especially pumped here at KISW, and can't wait for the 2021-2022 NHL Season! 

Who else is ready for @nhlseattle’s announcement today?! We can’t wait! - @bjandmigs
