NHL - release the Kraken

Meh. NHL has had some bad mascot choices in recent expansions. This is not the worst.


the city of Seattle always seems to choose unique monikers. I like that

For anyone not aware, the Kraken is a revered giant sea creature in Nordic folklore… so it’s a nod to Seattle’s heavy Scandinavian heritage and history, a la Minnesota Vikings.

As a Seattleite and a hockey fan it was initially among my least favorite of the options being peddled. I’ll admit I like it though, especially the logo and color scheme. Worst part is that the new arena has such a terrible name (Climate Pledge Arena) that everyone is just going to end up calling it the Krak House.


Sports names end with an ‘s’ - the imagery and the logo are fantastic. The name is catastrophically stupid.

Like the Utah Ja… oh wait.

Anyone catch Stars 5-4 OT win vs Avs?

Kid that scored the winning goal played in 11 games this season and had 1 goal. Today he had a hat trick. :star_struck:

Playoff hockey!
