"He'll be at most of the games and many practices and events that we hold," Wild President Matt Majka said. "Breezer I'm sure is going to be a mainstay around our entire organization."

The dog will be with team for the next year, then Breezer will leave the organization to serve those who served our nation and become a comfort dog for a veteran with PTSD.

"It's really fun to have a dog around the office," Majka??????? said. "We really get a lot of joy out of that, but the purpose of Breezer long-term is more important than that."
