Seattle Kraken expansion draft day

Post by seacat85 » Wed Jul 21, 2021 1:39 pm

Today is expansion draft day for the Seattle Kraken of the NHL. Picks were supposed to be in by 10AM ET and to be revealed at 8PM ET. Hopefully they can have a first season like the Las Vegas Golden Knights. Sounds like the arena (former Key Arena now Climate Pledge Arena) will be ready for the regular season. I've heard that they will be playing preseason games around the state (Kent, Everett, Spokane).

I'd love to take in a Kraken game this year. Any idea when single game tickets go on sale?

Someone thought they'd heard not until the week of the game. They also suspect single game tickets may be a tough get.

I'm stoked about Seattle getting an NHL franchise, but I think Kraken is a stupid nickname. I was pretty surprised that Montreal left goalie Carey Price unprotected, and even more surprised that Seattle didn't select him. I think he has a pretty huge contract though, and he's fairly old, so I suppose that's the explanation for both those things.
