The Seattle Kraken are now an National Hockey League team.

Seattle — who won an expansion bid for the league — revealed its name on Thursday, giving a chance for social media to crack jokes about the Kraken.

The Seattle Kraken unveiled the name on their website with the following introduction:

Some say we know more about the cosmos than we do our own waters. Maybe that’s what draws us to the sea — the vast expanse, the impermeable deep. The uncharted has long inspired generations of folklore. In Seattle, we welcome voyagers. Our port city brings legends from all over the world. We cross boundless oceans and dense wilderness, finding our beasts along the way. These legends are home to this rugged coastal wonderland with a name etched on Lord Stanley. Now, we breathe new life into a legend. An ancient and powerful force reawakens in the heart of the great Pacific Northwest. We will wear the ‘S’ in honor of our champion predecessors, and we will have a name that incarnates the might of the sea.

Social media had some fun with the name.
