Slappy’s story is deeply ingrained within the Kalamazoo Wings organization. Slappy can be seen at the Kalamazoo Wings games and out within the community. Slappy is happy to share his story with you.
Slappy has been a crucial part of the Kalamazoo Wings Hockey Club for many years and will be for years to come. Slappy is best known for his oddball antics on and off the ice. He is such a big part of the organization that the Kalamazoo Wings wore special Slappy jerseys to honor him during a game. Slappy is considered the “beak bone” of the team and is responsible for random cheer off's that happen in the stands. When you come to a game you can expect to see Slappy trying to steal popcorn from fans, pulling pranks and cheering on his Kalamazoo Wings to victory! One thing that makes Slappy really happy is when fans give him high fives, so make sure to give him one before you leave!
