College hockey returns to Anchorage; Kraken get an assist

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Hockey is returning to the University of Alaska Anchorage after donors, including the NHL’s newest team, raised over $3 million after the program was eliminated.

    University officials announced that the Seawolves will return for the 2022-23 season.

    The Anchorage Daily News reports the team will need a year to regroup after losing its coach and players in the last 12 months.  

    Among the 1,140 donors were the NHL’s Seattle Kraken, which kicked in about $150,000 from the team and individuals associated with it to keep the college program alive.

    The Kraken also launched their own Save the Seawolves campaign.
