Seattle is getting a NHL team.

On Tuesday, the league's Board of Governors voted unanimously to approve the Emerald City as the 32nd franchise.

The team will begin playing in the 2021-22 season.

The expansion fee is a NHL record of $650 million USD.

Seattle's team will be in the Pacific Division, shifting the Arizona Coyotes to the Central Division.
