Let’s go over some news and notes:
- Breezer, the Wild’s beloved team pup, is off to accomplish some bigger and better things. It’s a sad day.
Puppy news!— Minnesota Wild (@mnwild) July 9, 2020
This season, the #mnwild welcomed Breezer (@mnwildpup) to the team and he has been the best boy.
Today, he is graduating and moving on to work with our friends at @Soldiers6MN.
We will miss you so much, Breezer! pic.twitter.com/5BwOCMCwpa
