Calgary Hitmen Fans Throw 25,214 Teddy Bears Onto Ice
The Calgary Hitmen's annual "Teddy Bear Toss" took place on Sunday after Radel Fazleev rattled one home off the post at 1:38 of the first period against the Moose Jaw Warriors on Sunday evening in Calgary. What happened next is an absoulute teddy bear blizzard! Fans littered the ice with fuzzy bears, which are then turned over to more than 60 local charities. It puts smiles on kid's faces, and, judging from the tweets below, the players have a pretty cracking time with it as well.
