Seattle’s NHL team will be nameless no more.
The franchise tweeted a video hinting at a major announcement that will be made Thursday at 9 a.m. PT (12 p.m. ET). It shows a fishing crew on a boat as they reel in a red light.
Check out the video:

It’s unclear what the name will be, though Mayor Mannor’s John Hoven revealed in January on Sirius XM’s NFL Network Radio in January that he believed it would be Kraken.
Sockeyes also has been thrown around.
Set your alarms, folks. We’re going to have a new NHL team come Thursday!
