The Tampa Bay Lightning may have signed Kevin Shattenkirk yesterday, but their biggest pick up of the offseason is yellow Labrador puppy, Bolt. They are now the newest team to jump on the puppy bandwagon.
Bolt, who will serve as a team ambassador while becoming big and strong, will be with the Lightning for a year before adventuring to become a service dog. He will definitely work to the top of his paw-tential and fit in great with the squad.
Hi, #Bolts fans! Meet Bolt. 🐶

Bolt was born on March 31, 2019 and spent the first part of his life with Southeastern Guide Dogs. When he is done with his time in Tampa Bay, he will return to continue his education to become a service dog. Southeastern Guide Dog puppies go on to become great help for people with visual impairments, veterans with disabilities, and children with challenges such as vision loss or loss of a parent in the military.
Bolt is on both Instagram and Twitter at @BoltsPup.
Bolt is now the newest puppy in the NHL, joining Finn of the San Jose Sharks who joined the team this summer. Last year, the St. Louis Blues, Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers, Ottawa Senators, and New York Islanders all trained future service dogs. The Blues’ Barclay won “Best Team Dog” from the NHL Fan Choice Awards.
