Poke Check’s Bio:

Every year during the off-season, Blades General Manager/Head Coach Lorne Molleken takes a trip to the Himalayas to collect ice for Credit Union Centre. In the year 2004 upon returning to make his ice haul, he found a Giant Yeti frozen in the ice. After using his hair dryer to defrost the beast, his elusive nature forced him to go back into hiding but this time in Credit Union Centre.

Making unpredictable appearances during the Blades games, the fans would get know this abominable snowman as Poke Check.
