Expected The NHL’s expansion franchise in Seattle has been teasing plans to announce their name and logo for several months now. First they said it would happen around All-Star Weekend, then maybe late winter, then April. Now that the coronavirus pandemic has most of the city hiding under their beds for a while, expect to keep waiting on this big announcement.
Rumor In January, John Hoven of Mayor’s Manor claimed the organization had settled on Seattle Kraken as the team name. Whether that ends up being true remains to be seen, but Icethetics sources have confirmed that moniker has been given strong consideration but isn’t necessarily final yet. Of course, current events have given them more time to consider other options as well.
