Seattle is expected to join the league for the 2021-2022 season.
League commissioner Gary Bettman made the announcement on Tuesday at a press conference following the conclusion of the board of governors meetings.
On Tuesday, the league's board of governors unanimously voted to approve Seattle as the 32nd NHL franchise.
The NHL had been at 30 teams since 2000 before deciding to expand to Las Vegas in 2016.
As the 32 team, the arrival of Seattle allows the NHL to finally balance out the league's four divisions.
Seattle's ownership group led by billionaire David Bonderman and a number of minority partners, including Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer, will pay an expansion fee of US$650 million.
Bettman explained the new franchise will be stocked under the same rules as the ones that were in place for the league's 31st expansion team - the Vegas Golden Knights.
The NHL also announced divisional realignment, which will go into effect once Seattle begins play.
