The Maroon Loon
The Maroon Loon is one of the most beloved college hockey mascots of all-time. He is the former mascot of the UMD Bulldogs, even though he is a skating chicken. He is famous for his ridiculous antics including skating on stilts and shooting water guns at opposing fans. The Loon sounds like a truly awesome college hockey mascot... reminds me a little of the Philly Phanatic.

The Loon also has a UMD hockey blog dedicated to him (click here).
Here are two videos courtesy of the Maroon Loon himself. You can see how fun the Loon was and take a look at UMD Hockey history:
