The Seattle Storm announced its 2019 regular-season schedule on Tuesday and it includes five games at Angel of the Winds Arena. The Storm will play the rest of their 17-game home slate at Alaska Airlines Arena on the University of Washington’s campus as Key Arena is under construction in preparation for the National Hockey League expanding to Seattle in 2021.
