Just three weeks away from their very first preseason game (yes, it came to us quickly), the expansion of the NHL Seattle Kraken revealed the inaugural season logo they will wear on their jerseys.

The patch shows a navy blue shield with a depiction of Puget Sound at the bottom, Washington’s Mount Rainier can be seen rising in the distance behind the waves in the medium shade of blue used by the team. The main Kraken logo is placed on the water with INAUGURAL SEASON 2021-22 above in navy blue.

Seattle will wear this logo as a patch in the upper right corner of its blue and white uniforms throughout the 2021-22 season, as we’ve seen via the club’s official promotional images for team merchandise:

Wearing an inaugural season badge was not the norm in the NHL until the 1999-2000 season when the Atlanta Thrashers added a commemorative logo on the front of their jersey. Prior to that, the inaugural season logos existed although they were reserved for merchandise and other promotional materials. Since the Thrashers did so in 1999, every NHL team to play an inaugural season (due to expansion or move) has worn a patch to mark the occasion.

Here’s a look back at some of the other inaugural season logos used by NHL clubs over the past 30 years, as mentioned in the paragraph above, everything pre-Thrashers wasn’t worn on the ice.

The Seattle Kraken, the 32nd NHL team, will make their ice debut on September 26 for a preseason game against the Vancouver Canucks at the Spokane Arena. They will play their first-ever regular season game two weeks later, on October 12, when they visit the Vegas Golden Knights. After five on the road, the Kraken will finally make their regular-season home debut at the refurbished KeyArena (now known as Climate Pledge Arena) on October 23 against Vancouver.
