The new NHL franchise in Seattle has still yet to decide on a team name, or at least they what they would like to have you believe. After a report surfaced on Wednesday claiming that the Seattle expansion franchise would call itself the Seattle Kraken, the team has pushed back against those rumors.
The still-officially-unnamed team's official Twitter account pushed back against the rumors, saying the process of selecting the name is still ongoing and fans should beware of the "fishy rumors" (get it?) floating around.
That being said, they didn't outright deny that would be called the Kraken.
