When Bell MTS Place, the home of NHL team the Winnipeg Jets, got a new dog as part of the security team, that dog needed a name.
With that in mind, the team and True North Sports and Entertainment asked the fans to vote for the puppy’s new name after season seat holders chose four options: Benny, Ducky, Lenny/Kroppy and Scout.
We have something to announce in a half hour...

The winning name was Lenny – Len Kropioski was a Second World War veteran and Winnipeg Jets season ticket holder who died aged 98 before the 2016/17 NHL season.
Joining Dante, Daisy, Grace and Ryp, we are excited to announce the newest member of our in-house security dog team...
