NHL Seattle Unveils New Renderings For Northgate Training Center, HQ

NHL Seattle officials unveiled "new artistic renderings of the planned 180,000-square-foot Northgate Ice Center that will serve" as the team's HQ and training center, according to Geoff Baker of the SEATTLE TIMES. Groundbreaking on the $85M-plus complex is set to begin next February and the facility is expected to be completed by June '21. The complex is being designed by K.C.-based Generator Studio, which helped build the Blues' new practice facility, and will "house about 200 NHL Seattle employees." Blues officials have "hailed the venue as a potential game-changer in terms of luring free agents." NHL Seattle "plans similar high-end training at its complex," and reps from team sponsor health care provider Virginia Mason outlined "details of a planned regional medical clinic on-site for the team, players and community." Washington state Rep. Eric Pettigrew attended the unveiling and "announced he's taken on a role with NHL Seattle as a community ambassador" and Dir of Suites Services (SEATTLE TIMES, 10/2).
