Little Debbie® Hockey Mom of the Month

Throughout the 2016-17 season, the Chicago Wolves and Little Debbie have been recognizing hard-working moms with the Hockey Mom of the Month award, presented by Little Debbie.

After all, every hockey player knows the real heart and soul of every team: the players’ moms. The moms who, depending on the practice schedule, either wake up at the crack of dawn or stay up late. Who log long hours in the car driving to and from the rink. Who are there in the stands cheering on their players from mites all the way to the pros.

One winner was selected each month from October to March and received a prize package that included an authentic customized Wolves jersey, tickets to a Wolves game and the chance to meet a Wolves alumni player.

Here are this season’s winners:

October: Shannah Kelly
November: Lori Iwanski
December: Rebecca Calomino
January: Christine Henricksen
February: Lana Magnavite
March: Jen Malm

On April 9, during the team’s 4 p.m. game against the Rockford IceHogs, the Chicago Wolves will honor the 2016-17 Little Debbie Hockey Mom of the Year. During an on-ice ceremony that features the six winners, one mom will receive the Little Debbie Mom of the Year award.
