Has Seattle ever had a professional hockey team?
The article discusses Seattle's history with professional hockey. It has been home to two professional teams: the Seattle Metropolitans and the Seattle Totems. The Metropolitans were the first U.S. team to win the Stanley Cup in 1917, while the Totems were a minor league team that played in the Western Hockey League from 1958 to 1975. Seattle is currently without a professional hockey team, but the NHL has expressed interest in expanding to the city. There have been a few failed attempts to bring a team back to Seattle, but it remains to be seen if the city will ever get a professional hockey team again.
