Introduced by: John Martinka

The Seattle Kraken are the new expansion team in the National Hockey League! We will spend the time today learning about and discussing the birth of the Seattle Kraken – from the decision to entirely re-build the (former Key) Arena, to the expansion process, the growth of the franchise including sponsorships, the naming of the team, the General Manager, the Kraken Training Center, and the road towards puck drop in October.
