Bailey and friends will be gathering tonight for the NHL’s Mascot Game night, a game show hosted on the streaming platform Twitch, at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET.
In case you think you’re too cool to watch nine mascots online instead of, oh, I don’t know, the second night of the first-ever digital NFL draft, joining these grown adults who are truly the unspoken heroes of working at home in these difficult times will be two Olympic hockey players: Renata Fast of Hockey Canada and Hannah Brandt from USA Hockey.

Brandt and Fast have declared this to be an international battle for glory, though Fast will be the only Canadian, as all of the mascots attending are from teams based in the states. The nine mascots will be Bailey (Los Angeles Kings), Nordy (Minnesota Wild), S.J. Sharkie (San Jose Sharks), Gnash (Nashville Predators), N.J. Devil (New Jersey Devils), Bernie (Colorado Avalanche, Slapshot (Washington Capitals), Stanley C. Panther (Florida Panthers) and Louie (St. Louis Blues).
