Seattle Kraken opens NHL inaugural season in Las Vegas



Wait no longer, Seattle Kraken fans. Your local NHL team has finally hit the ice.

The Kraken opened its inaugural NHL season in Las Vegas in a Tuesday night game on ESPN against perhaps one of their main rivals, the Vegas Golden Knights.

While Seattle is the league’s 32nd franchise, the Golden Knights were in 31st overall, joining the NHL for the 2017-18 season. Now, they’re the big brothers of the Kraken in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference, and they set the tone early on with two quick goals Tuesday night en route to a 4-3 win over Seattle.

The Kraken begins the season with a five-game road trip before opening the Climate Pledge Arena on the former KeyArena venue at Seattle Center on October 23 for its home opener against the Vancouver Canucks, their closest rival in the Pacific division.
