Seattle Kraken Unveil Nickname

The team also revealed their color scheme and logo

We finally know what the 32nd NHL franchise will be called. Today, the Seattle Kraken unveiled their name, colors, and logo in an online presentation. The NHL has defined the team’s colors as “deep sea navy, ice blue, shadow blue, boundless blue and red alert.”

General Manager Rod Francis thinks the new logo represents the Emerald City well. He said, “Seattle’s a city with a deep maritime history… I think this name embodies a connection with the sea and a curiosity of what lies beneath it. It’s a natural tie to Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.” Francis said the name was decided on after months of research and votes from over 215,000 fans.

Seattle is not expected to begin playing until the start of the 2021-2022 NHL season. The last time an expansion team revealed their logo was when Vegas announced they would be named the Golden Knights in November of 2016.
