Seattle has been unanimously approved by the NHL's Board of Governors in Sea Island, Georgia, to start the 2021-22 season as the league's 32nd team. According to Bettman, Seattle will be afforded the same advantages that Vegas had in being able to draft quality players from other teams, with one minor wrinkle: the Golden Knights, who are in their second season, won't be losing anyone.
After multiple unsuccessful attempts to greenlight a new venue in Seattle, the new National Hockey League team will play in renovated KeyArena, the home of the city's former NBA franchise, which moved to Oklahoma City after the 2008 season.
Seattle will play in the Pacific Division, meaning the Arizona Coyotes will move to the Central. Vegas does not get any of the money and is exempt from the expansion draft, which will take place in June 2021.

When Canadians think of Seattle, much of what we know comes from media and entertainment. No team name, an ownership group they didn't know very well, a building plan that was back then somewhat defined but fairly vague.
"It's down the road a little bit", Keller, who can become a restricted free agent after next season, said after the Coyotes morning skate prior to their game against the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center (10:30 p.m. ET; FS-W, FS-A PLUS, NHL.TV). "This is just a great thing for Seattle and I'm so honored to be part of it". "If it were someplace else, I wouldn't have done it". Leiweke said arena renovations will cost $800 million and the addition of a state-of-the-art practice facility makes it a total investment of over $1.5 billion.
