Seattle\'s NHL team, which will make its debut in the 2021-22 season, on Thursday finally announced its name -- the Kraken -- as well as a color scheme: icy blue and navy blue with sharp red accents.

The NHL officially named Seattle as its 32nd team in 2018 for a $650 million expansion fee.

I’ve always rooted for expansion teams. Hopefully the city of Seattle embraces them, paving the way for the NBA to return there too.
