What is Paw Patrol?

The Paw Patrol is a group of men and women who act as fan ambassadors for the Arizona Coyotes and are focused on in-arena and on-ice activities and entertainment. They meet and interact with members of our community across the state and create memorable experiences for the best fans in the NHL!


While every game and every day is different for the members of the Paw Patrol, we can guarantee one thing: that they have fun at their job! Whether they're throwing T-shirts in the stands, selecting special fans to ride the Zamboni or skating out and picking up hats off the ice after a hat trick, the members of the Paw Patrol get an experience unlike any other every time they work a game.


The Paw Patrol joins our mascot, Howler, and the players as the faces of the Arizona Coyotes. From signature events like the Draft Party and Howliday Skate to community events including golf tournaments, charity walks and viewing parties, a Paw Patrol member's job is always engaging and puts him or her in front of our fans across the state.
