NHL agrees to accept expansion team application from Seattle
The iconic sloped roof of KeyArena, center, a sports and entertainment venue at the Seattle Center, is seen from above Monday, Dec. 4, 2017, in Seattle.
Bettman says expansion application for Seattle is basically the same as #Vegas except for price BUT also may consider option for relocation in 2020-21 if it comes to that instead.
Just days after the Seattle City Council approved a $600 million renovation of KeyArena, a long-speculated future home of hockey, the NHL has granted Seattle permission to apply for an expansion team. The commissioner also noted that Seattle would be on the hook for a $650 million expansion fee should it be accepted as the 32nd team.
The NHL has officially allowed the city of Seattle to submit an application for an NHL expansion team, according to league commissioner Gary Bettman. "This is a process that we go through". The Vegas Golden Knights began operations this season and are in the playoff chase.
Bettman says the process with Seattle will be similar to Las Vegas, starting with a ticket drive.
An expansion in Seattle would put the National Hockey League at an even number of teams again at 32.
Around the league: Devils defenseman Ben Lovejoy said he will donate his brain to help with head-trauma research, becoming the first active NHL player to make such a pledge.
"That doesn't mean we have granted an expansion team", Bettman said. She hopes to meet with potential owner David Bonderman soon. But that's not something we're focused on right now. "But I think there is a lot of pent up appetite in Seattle for this", Durkan said.
