Roots of Seattle Hockey

When one speaks of sports in Seattle, ice hockey receives nary a mention. But the sport has a colorful history in Seattle.  While the city has tried valiantly over the years to land an NHL franchise (hopefully in the not-too-distant future, oh please oh please oh please), it does claim a Stanley Cup. The Seattle Metropolitans were the first American-based team to win the famed cup in 1917. Since then, Seattle has seen many teams, professional and amateur, skate on Seattle ice - the Vamps, the Eskimos, the Sea Hawks, the Ironmen, the Bombers, the Americans, the Totems, the Thunderbirds...

This small collection pays homage to Seattle's rich hockey history.
