It's more about when than if, given the success of the Vegas Golden Knights' expansion and the $650 million the new owners will pay to join.

The prospective ownership group began selling refundable season ticket deposits of $500 to $1,000 each on March 1.

"Today is an exciting and historic day for our League as we expand to one of North America's most innovative, attractive and fastest-growing cities", Bettman said.

But some realignment would be necessary with Seattle joining the league, since a new team joining the Pacific Division would put it up to nine teams, while the Central would only have seven.

Vegas does not get a cut of the money and is exempt from the expansion draft.

"We will keep the historic roof, and everything else will be new", Leiweke said, adding that construction begins tomorrow.

The new team will play in the Pacific Division, the same division as their new rival, the Vancouver Canucks.

Seattle is expected to join the league for the 2021-2022 season.

A Seattle franchise would mean the addition of a 16th team to the Western Conference, matching the number in the East. It creates a nice geographic rivalry with Vancouver.

"Seattle's one of the fastest-growing cities in the country", Commissioner Gary Bettman said recently. Four team names advanced to the final few rounds of voting, with two going head-to-head in the fourth and final round.
