Give our Bear a Name

The WBLAHA invites you to join our campaign to help name our bear. Simply email us at or contact us via Twitter at @wblhockey with your suggestion, using the hashtag #NameTheBearWBL, by Sunday, July 5.

The best nominees will be included in a poll on where you can cast your vote to select the winning name which will be announced at our July 16 ‘Meet the Bear’ event.

We also encourage you to take photos with our bear and share them with us on Facebook and Twitter, but don’t forget to mention @wblhockey in your tweets so we can retweet them.

Be sure to pick up your All-American Bear Passport at Goodthings, White Bear Smiles or the White bear Press office and list our bear as your choice for the “People’s Choice Bear” or “Mission Bear” or both.
