Today is National Superhero Day, which honors superheroes both real and fictional. The NHL team pups sent a special message to frontline healthcare workers calling them “everyday heroes”, especially in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Not only have fans had the opportunity to enjoy his company and cuteness at practices and other events, but they also have watched Captain’s progression as a future service dog and his growth as a future helper to a first responder or veteran. Captain and Tori are both training through America’s VetDog’s “Puppies with a Purpose” program.
