The second-most recent NHL expansion team, the Las Vegas Golden Knights, were instant contenders. The Seattle Kraken will hope to follow that path and have gotten off to a steady start in their inaugural season, playing the Golden Knights tight in a 4-3 season-opening loss. They followed that up with a 4-3 win over the Nashville Predators, a playoff team from last season. Picking up that historic first win instantly relieves some pressure off of this squad. Eight goals through two games is also an encouraging sign for a franchise that built its first roster with an emphasis on defense and goaltending. You can buy Kraken jerseys here.
That strong start is only adding to the demand for Seattle Kraken jerseys. The Kraken sweaters have been a red-hot NHL item for fans in the Pacific Northwest and across the continent. Now that early-season standouts like center Jared McCann, who has four points through two games, are emerging, the deep-sea blue home and white away jerseys are continuing to fly off shelves. See the selection here.
You can also customize your authentic Kraken uniform with any name and two-digit number you'd like for a unique design all of your own. And whether you're planning on being at Climate Pledge Arena on opening night, watching from home, or adding to your NHL jersey collection, you'll want to place your orders in time for the start of the season.
The Kraken will begin their 2021 NHL regular-season debut on Oct. 12 against the Golden Knights. NHL legend Ron Francis is the general manager and has tasked former Philadelphia Flyers head coach Dave Hakstol with leading an intriguing mix of veterans and youngsters.
This will be Seattle's first professional hockey team since the Seattle Totems of the Western Hockey League, and the first Seattle-based team to compete for the Stanley Cup since the Seattle Metropolitans in 1924. The Metropolitans were the first American team to win the Stanley Cup in 1917, but ceased operations just seven years later when the Seattle Ice Arena was turned into a parking garage.
The Kraken will be looking to follow in the footsteps of the Las Vegas Golden Knights, who made the Stanley Cup Final in their first season of operation in 2017-18. Before the Kraken make history as the NHL's 32nd franchise, be sure to check out the new Kraken uniforms and more Kraken gear.
