The Newest NHL Team Are Quickly Proving Themselves Worthy As They Face Calgary On Wednesday

Since the start of the NHL pre-season going into the 2021-2022 season, the Seattle Kraken are quickly becoming a worthy contender after beating the Vancouver Canucks 5-3 in their first ever game during the pre-season.

The Seattle Kraken became the newest team in the league since the Vegas Golden Nights, who debuted in the 2017-2018 season.

Since then the Kraken have scored 195 goals.

But they've only won 14 games which is a let down, but for a brand new team it's a good start.

The formation of the new team was delayed by the Covid Pandemic effecting sports in America, so their planned debut season of 2020-2021 had to be cut and forwarded to the 2021-2022 season instead.

Home fans at Climate Pledge Arena have enjoyed this newest edition to Seattle's sports scene along side: NFL's Seahawks, MLB's Mariners, Football's (or Soccer in America) Sounders, and ARD's Throttle Rockets.

No sign on if NBA's Supersonics would be returning however.

But others have said that the Kraken would soon go the way of other defunct NHL teams, notably the Hartford Whalers, Atlanta Thrashers, and Quebec Nordics.

Due to them entering the sport at an inopportune time for cash revenue in the wider world of sports. 

The Kraken face the Calgary Flames for a rematch following a devastating 4-1 loss against Calgary, the match takes place on Wednesday at 2pm (Mountain Timezone).
