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.
@sweetgrass wins the internet today.
You know the opposing teams fans are going to roll with that when the Kraken visit.
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.
