Manitoba Moose got loose at the Assiniboine Park Zoo
For the third year in a row the Moose were out among the paying customers as the Manitoba players met, signed autographs and took pictures with the many fans who came out to meet members of the AHL squad.
Before the festivities began Vice President of operations for the Moose Dan Hursh presented the Assiniboine Park Zoo with a signed Manitoba Moose jersey. Dan spoke about the relationship between the Moose organization and the Assiniboine Park Zoo. The $5,793.72 in proceeds from the Polar Bear jersey auction went towards the Polar Bear conservation efforts of the Zoo.
They then revealed the new Polar Bear jersey that they will wear on January 14th.
Then the players spread out around the Journey to Churchill enclosure to meet fans and sign autographs.
For the third year in a row there were plenty of young fans (and even some older ones) who had a great time getting to meet some of the players that they normally watch from high above.
