Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Senior mascot lives in retirement home. Many people know that Winger Senior, the former mascot for the Tri-City Americans retired, but where did he go?

It turns out Winger has found a new permanent home here in Kennewick at the Hawthorne Court Retirement Home.

Tim Klees of Hawthorne Court says "Winger Senior decided to retire here at Hawthorne Court because we are dedicated hockey fans. We are an active retirement community and we have season tickets to the Americans. So this is his choice and he lives with us here in a cottage."

Hawthorne Court has been sponsoring the Tri-City Americans for years. Winger Senior's living space is red, white and blue themed like his old team.
