Skates

About Skates


This year marks Skates’ 24th season as the Mascot of the Chicago Wolves. Skates loves spending time in the community, raising funds for Chicago Wolves Charities and meeting fans. He is especially proud of helping his fellow animals with the Adopt-A-Dog program, which has helped more than 1,300 dogs find homes.

During Wolves games, Skates loves to high-five fans, sign autographs, throw T-shirts and get involved with all of the promotions. He especially loves dancing in the aisles to “Cotton-Eyed Joe.” Occasionally, you can even catch Skates firing off a few shots at the Slap Shot Cage! When he’s not in the middle of the fun at Wolves home games, Skates can be found at festivals and parades throughout the Chicago area. Click here to find out where Skates will be appearing! Next time you’re at a Wolves game, make sure to give Skates a howl!
