"Seattle's expansion NHL franchise released initial pricing for club seats with details on general ticket prices coming in 2020. The team says club seats will each cost between $285 and $355 based on a 44-game season ticket package. The club seats will be on three-, five- or seven-year terms.

The team will have 2,600 club seats in its new arena. Fans who left deposits will begin selecting seats soon.
Aside from club seats, the team said 80% of the suites in the arena have already been sold. The team says general seats will start at $50 per game and there will be some single-game tickets starting at $20."

Don't they know so yet but here is the odds on fave. Double-entendre, baby!

1. SOCKEYES

Every time the Seahawks play a home game in primetime, what do you see? Guys throwing salmon around in Seattle’s Pike Place Market. It’s extremely cliché at this point but salmon really are synonymous with Washington state. The name also has the fantastic double-entendre of hockey players getting socked in the eye during a fight. Imagine a Sammy Sockeye mascot dressed like a hockey goon with a big black eye and a bunch of missing teeth.

It definitely rolls of the tongue better than my choice of the Kraken.

I like the "Sockeyes" also.

It's a bit Seattleque to wait so long on a name.

Media Promotion 101: Wait to unveil the name...keep 'em guessing! Heck they may even release a list of finalists and bring on a poll!

I think there is something to that. More sh*t marketing like the Mariners do saying "we're trying to make the Wild Card" near then end of the season when they 10 games or less back.

I think you are on to something here but whether the nhl would approve it is unknown.

I think I heard the nickname may be revealed at the All Star game after New Year's? I like Sockeyes for the nickname as well, but also Totems.

They'll likely have a big celebration somewhere in town with jerseys, caps and teeshirts ready for sale?

In year three, Vegas is still selling out all or most games. Their secondary market prices apparently are highest in the league.

And they have strong local tv ratings.

Amazing success story.
