A Special Night for the BE GR8 Squad

It was quite a day to remember as I was blessed to make a few more memories with my fellow #8.

February 24, 2023
There were many highlights from last weekend, but perhaps the most unexpected was witnessing Minnesota Wild legend Mikko Koivu becoming a Dawg! Thanks to Tommy Powers, we were able to add Mikko to our Top Dawg roster and I was just hoping we’d get Mikko to participate in a game or two. Well did I ever underestimate the big Finn.
