Well, the rumors have become reality, as Seattle has officially been given an NHL team that will begin in the 2021 season. The vote was a unanimous one which is something you like to see, as it was finally time for the NHL to get Seattle involved. They will be the 32nd team in the National Hockey League, evening out both conferences. With this move, Arizona will move to the Central division when Seattle is ready to compete.
This comes just a season after the Vegas Golden Knights first NHL season which led them all the way to the Stanley Cup Final, and you have to believe the success of that expansion team and the continuous interest in Seattle to have the NHL come to their city.
Congratulations to the city of Seattle as they finally have accomplished their dreams of adding another team, hopefully the NBA can follow and get them a team soon.
More to come as Seattle will begin to prepare for the 2021 season.
