Totems Favored as Team Name for New Seattle NHL Franchise

It is official: professional hockey is coming to Seattle. The NHL board of governors voted Tuesday to approve the expansion program for its NHL Seattle group to bring a team to the league to the 2021-22 season.
The statement was expected for quite some time since it has been no secret that the league has been actively looking for a home for its 32nd team. Whenever the Seattle club begins play, It Is Going to combine the Pacific Division, together with the Arizona Coyotes moving in the Pacific to the Central Division. There are just seven squads in the Central.
Totems projected since the team name If it comes to the title for Seattle’s new NHL franchise, BetOnline has released odds for the event. The sportsbook has tabbed Totems since the -105 favorite, with Emeralds (+400), Rainiers (+700), Sockeyes (+700) and Kraken (+700) topping the list.
The team will perform at Seattle Center Arena, since the former KeyArena is scheduled to undergo a privately financed $800-million renovation. The stadium opened in 1962 and has been the home of the NBA’s Seattle SuperSonics prior to them relocating to Oklahoma City in 2008.
With two teams in the four major North American pro sports leagues currently in Seattle (the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and the MLB’s Seattle Mariners), it was a no-brainer for the NHL to deliver a group there, especially after the overwhelming victory of the latest expansion franchise, the Vegas Golden Knights. There is no lack of interest surrounding hockey in Washington, as a season-ticket deposit driveway was held with the possible ownership group on March 1 and secured 32,000 deposits in the first 31 hours.
