The Seattle Kraken play their first home game Saturday night. To celebrate, special events are happening during the day throughout Seattle. Here is a look at what’s planned in Emerald City:

Cammi Granato raised the Kraken flag at the Space Needle. At 605 feet up, the NHL’s first female pro scout was flying high Saturday morning, literally.
