“We made a strong case to owners from around the league that the NHL should come to Seattle in 2020. There’s no doubt that our fans are ready for the NHL at a new world-class arena. We will continue to respect the NHL’s process as they consider expansion, but I’m confident that winter is on its way to our great City.”
