The mock concepts for the Seattle Kraken alternate jerseys have arrived.
The NHL Seattle expansion team officially unveiled their name and design on Monday, and designers have been hard at work ever since. The Seattle Kraken will be the name of the NHL’s newest expansion franchise, which will begin play in the 2021-22 NHL season.
The Kraken will play in the Pacific Division along with the Canucks, Ducks, Kings, Sharks, Golden Knights, Flames and Oilers. With Seattle arriving, the Coyotes are moving to the Central Division.
The Kraken unveiled their design as part of a big announcement last week. The home and away jerseys will feature the primary ‘S’ logo in the crest. They’ll incorporate the secondary logo, a space needle anchor design, on each of the shoulder patches.

While the Kraken have yet to announce an official alternate jersey, designers have been mocking up concepts and designs to give fans an idea of what a potential third jersey could look like.
A Reddit user with the username U/Gazoobz (@j_tasca on Twitter) has designed an awesome Seattle Kraken alternate jersey based on a tattoo shared by a Seattle fan. u/Seaside_Suicide proved he might be the biggest Seattle Kraken fan on the planet when he shared a photo of an epic Kraken tattoo he had done which combines the team’s two logos.
The alternate jersey mockup is based on the tattoo. It includes the primary ‘S’ logo wrapped around the secondary space needle logo on the crest. The design also has the “Ice Blue” color as the primary color instead of the “Deep Sea Blue” color used as the main color on the home jersey.
Jeff also designed a Seattle Kraken alternate jersey in which he kept the primary ‘S’ logo on the crest, but still used the “Ice Blue” color as the primary color.
The Seattle Kraken is still over a year away from hitting the ice, but it’s awesome to see all the excitement over the NHL’s newest franchise.
