Skates

Skates, The Chicago Wolves Mascot


During Wolves games, Skates loves to high-five fans, sign autographs, throw T-shirts and get involved with all 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.
