Bettman says National Hockey League will consider Seattle expansion bid

San Jose Sharks

The Seattle City Council approved a privately financed $600 million renovation to KeyArena on Monday.

The NHL has approved Seattle's request to submit an expansion application and will permit the city to begin a season-ticket drive, according to Emily Kaplan of ESPN. The expansion fee will be $650 million.

World War Z was originally released in 2006 as a book by Max Brooks called World War Z : An Oral History of the Zombie War. The trailer revealed hordes of zombies rushing numerous survivors, who were looking to fend them all off with firearms.

Bettman said the David Bonderman group in Seattle has been granted permission to file an application for expansion and run a season-ticket drive, similar to what occurred with the Vegas process. He made the announcement Thursday after the first day of the board of governors meeting.

Calgary and Arizona are still struggling with arena problems, but the National Hockey League will see how Seattle's ticket drive goes before ever considering relocating one of those teams to Washington state. The Knights have been a great boost for the league, as they've started the season better than any expansion team in NHL history, and are vying for the top spot in the Pacific Conference with the L.A Kings.

The expansion fee for a new team in Seattle will be $650million and would give the National Hockey League a chance to balance the conferences, if the city's expansion application is accepted.

KeyArena was home to the NBA's SuperSonics for 33 of the franchise's 41 years in Seattle before Clay Bennett's investment group bought the team from Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz in 2006 and moved the team to Oklahoma City in 2008. "I think we'll meet the benchmarks we need to meet and in the mean time we'll be negotiating the side agreements, doing the environmental work and moving forward so we can open when the National Hockey League wants to come".
