Blizzard T. Husky has been the mascot of the Michigan Tech Huskies since 1997. In a competition to name him, Blizzard beat out Harley, Heikki, Howie, and Yoopie. Blizzard’s middle name is “The.”
Blizzard can be seen at Michigan Tech's home sporting events along with other events at the university and in the community. He pumps up the crowd by skating in the hockey arena before home games. Blizzard wears number "85" to recognize the year Michigan Tech was founded (1885).
