NHL Seattle broke ground today for their new training facility, headquarters and community rinks. The 180,000-square-foot venue will be finished in late 2021.
After a trade deadline where the Boston Bruins shipped away prospect Axel Andersson, veteran David Backes, Danton Heinen, and a first round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, the Bruins were set to take on the Calgary Flames. With Ondrej Kase out on the IR, all eyes were set on newly acquired forward Nick Ritchie.
NHL Seattle plays its first official National Hockey League game in the 2021-22 season. The privately funded $930 arena renovation project for the old Key Arena is scheduled to open in the summer of 2021.
