Totems Favored as Team Name for New Seattle NHL Franchise

It’s official: professional baseball is coming to Seattle. The NHL board of governors voted Tuesday to approve the expansion application for its NHL Seattle group to bring a team to the league for the 2021-22 season.
The statement was expected for quite some time as it has been no secret that the league was actively looking for a house for its 32nd team. Whenever the Seattle club begins play, It Is Going to join the Pacific Division, together with the Arizona Coyotes moving from the Pacific to the Central Division. There are seven squads from the Central.
Totems projected as the likeliest team title When it comes to the title for Seattle’s new NHL franchise, BetOnline has introduced chances for the event. The sportsbook has tabbed Totems as the -105 favored, with Emeralds (+400), Rainiers (+700), Sockeyes (+700) and Kraken (+700) topping the list.
The team will play at Seattle Center Arena, since the prior KeyArena is scheduled to undergo a privately financed $800-million renovation. The arena opened in 1962 and has been the home of the NBA’s Seattle SuperSonics before them relocating to Oklahoma City in 2008.
With 2 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 team there, particularly after the overwhelming victory of the most recent 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 also procured 32,000 deposits at the first 31 hours.
