Yes, this is hockey news on a website devoted to book culture, but look: I am from Canada and the Kraken is an ancient mythological creature, and mythology is foundational to all of those books you’re carrying in that tote bag, nerd.

Anyway, the world is grim, so let’s celebrate a ridiculous name for a hockey team that has—somehow—spawned (get it?) a pretty cool logo (below). For the record, I only acknowledge Harryhausen’s Kraken (above).
