SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle’s expansion NHL franchise broke ground on its practice facility just a few miles from the arena it will call home. The facility will eventually house three full ice sheets and is part of a larger redevelopment project on the site of a former mall. The team's practice facility and headquarters are the centerpiece of the redevelopment project.  Seattle President and CEO Tod Lewieke says the practice facility is on a similar timeline as the team’s arena. Leiweke says the goal is to have the practice facility open in the summer of 2021
