In December 2018, the NHL approved a proposal by Seattle Hockey Partners to give a hockey team franchise to the city of Seattle.

In July 2020, the Kraken's name and logos were revealed.[4] It is the first professional hockey team to play in Seattle since the Seattle Totems in 1975.

The Kraken's first season was the 2021-22 NHL season. They finished last place in the Pacific Division with a 27-49-6 record and 60 points.
