Ex-mascot Pucky the Whale dances in gifs you never knew you needed

Pucky the Whale proves that a mascot doesn’t need to have a team to break it down like a preteen at a middle school dance. 

Pucky has come out of retirement to twerk on Twitter. Dan Ryan created gifs of everyone's favorite green whale doing the sprinkler and even picking a fight during a dance-off with Worcester’s Finz. The former Connecticut Whale mascot was retired in 2013 when the team became the Hartford Wolf Pack, but he has picked up a couple of self defense moves since being tackled in 2011.

Firefighter-killing AHL mascot Scorch consigned to ash heap of history

Asides from becoming a great new reaction gif, Pucky joined Whalers founder Howard Baldwin on the book signing circuit.
