Not much to do with brining the NHL to Seattle but as anyone who follows me on twitter or facebook, knows I love promoting local hockey including our 2 WHL teams. I thought I would do a quick shout out to our Seattle Thunderbirds on winning their first WHL championship in their 40 year franchise history. Tim Pigulski had a great write up of the thrilling game 6 of the Final.
Love seeing the twitter love for the Thunderbirds.

Opening a world-class arena in Seattle that can be home to both the NBA and NHL teams is a priority and we're on a path to do it.
