Chicago Wolves Hockey

We just finished our 2 week "Chicago Wolves" floor hockey program.  The wolves donated jerseys, certificates and a voucher for a free ticket to a wolves home game.  The kids really loved wearing the home and away jerseys during gameplay and it really made it easy to tell who was on your team!!
