Published on October 1st, 2022 @ 2:00 PM


Just ahead of another season of hockey, The Newfoundland Growlers are looking for someone to take over as their iconic mascot, Buddy the Puffin.

According to the team’s website, the new mascot performers will “play a critical role by representing the Growlers as the mascot.”

Responsibilities will include,

  • Perform as the Growlers mascot, at home games and a wide range of events throughout the community.
  • Possess a high level of enthusiasm and energy that encourages fan interaction.
  • Work with staff to create, develop, and execute skits and other in-game mascot entertainment.
  • Preserve the identity of the mascot through established character body movements and mannerisms.
  • Ensure proper use and maintenance of mascot equipment and props.
  • Exceptional customer service with every guest, partner, and client interaction.

The call for a new Buddy comes after the passing of Chris “Abbo” Abbott earlier this year. Abbott played the role of Buddy the Puffin since his inception in the the early 90’s.
