Mudbugs "Pooch Party" This Sunday

February 15, 2006 - Central Hockey League (CHL) - Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs News Release

BOSSIER CITY, LA -- One of the most entertaining and successful events in minor-pro hockey will return to the CenturyTel Center on Sunday evening as the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs host their second annual "Pooch Party" at 5:05 p.m. when they face the Lubbock Cotton Kings in Central Hockey League action. All fans are encouraged to bring their dog to the game.

Last season, dogs and their owners filled the designated section and this year could see a record canine attendance. Also, this year's best dressed dog will have the chance to drop the ceremonial first puck at center ice prior to the game. Tickets for fans who bring their dogs to the game are available for a discounted price of just eight dollars and one entrance and exit will be designated for them. All dogs must be on a leash and owners must show proof of updated shots. One dog per owner will be admitted. Current Mudbugs season ticket holders can exchange their tickets at the Will Call window for seats in the designated dog section.

"This is one of our most fun promotions and I think we could have a record number of dogs this year," said Mudbugs General Manager Jason Rent. "Last year was a great success and we hope our fans enjoy it again. There aren't too many places where you can bring your dog and have a great evening together so hopefully the dogs and their owners both have a great time on Sunday."

The Mudbugs will face the Lubbock Cotton Kings at 5:05 p.m. in the final home game of the month of February before playing seven straight on the road.

Sunday will also feature a special jersey worn by Mudbugs captain Dan Wildfong as part of the CHL's "Captains For Courage" program. Each team in the league is participating in an online jersey auction to benefit a local children's charity and the proceeds for the #10 jersey on Sunday will go to the Hal Sutton Foundation. The auction is currently taking place online at and will run until Wednesday March 1st at 5:00 p.m.
