The NHL’s Seattle Kraken introduced their new retro-inspired alternate jerseys Thursday.

The light blue sweaters honors the Seattle Ironmen of the Pacific Coast Hockey League in the late 1940s.

In a news release, the Kraken said “The retro jersey features the broad horizontal stripes pattern of the original Ironmen uniforms, with the popular lighter Ice Blue color gracing the shoulders and upper chest.

“The Deep Blue color that is the base for Seattle’s home kits provides a sturdy backdrop for the already-iconic ‘S’ logo with the negative-space tentacle and mysterious, foreboding red Kraken eye. Horizontal stripes continue in a thin-broad-thin patterns on the sleeves, jersey tail, and hockey socks.”

The Ironmen are not as famous as the Metropolitans or the Totems, but they are important to Seattle’s hockey heritage. The Ironmen kept hockey alive in the area during and post World War II.

The other three home dates are Dec. 3 against the Florida Panthers, Dec. 30 against the Edmonton Oilers, and Feb. 23 against the Boston Bruins.
