Recently, teams around the NHL have introduced team puppies to the world, and it has been a fun and refreshing experience. Fun and refreshing usually aren’t mentioned in the same sentence as the NHL, but that is exactly what these cute, little furballs bring to the table.
It’s a great marketing scheme, so kudos to the Winnipeg Jets for starting an awesome trend in hockey. The whole team puppy idea was started when the Jets hired a “security puppy” named Lenny back in 2017.
Slowly, but surely, we have been seeing more puppies around the NHL.
