Winnipeg Jets looking for perfect hockey name for one protective puppy

Hockey really has gone to the dogs in Winnipeg.

The NHL’s Winnipeg Jets are asking for the public’s help in naming its latest draft: One very adorable and talented puppy that will be part of the security crew at Bell MTS Place.

“As part of True North’s commitment to providing a safe and enjoyable experience,” the team’s owner said in a statement. “We have introduced an in-house security dog team (Explosive Ordnance Disposal dogs, or EOD) this season as part of the overall security service we provide at all True North venues and events.”

Season seat holders submitted some great names including the options:

  • Benny
  • Ducky
  • Lenny/Kroppy
  • Scout

Now,  it’s up to everyone else to vote until Nov. 8 at 11:59 p.m.

The winning name will be announced Nov. 10 at the Winnipeg Jets NHL Centennial Fan Arena.

There are already some convincing arguments posted online.
