Teddy Bear Toss

Hospital Visit1819

Each season around the holidays, the IceHogs host the Teddy Bear Toss. Fans are invited to being new stuffed animals to the select game and after the IceHogs score their first goal, fans toss the stuffed animals onto the ice. The stuffed animals are then collected and distributed throughout the community to children of need to help brighten their holiday season.

There are over 20 organizations that receive the stuffed animals including hospitals, where IceHogs players and staff help deliver the stuffed animals.

This year (2019) the IceHogs collected over 4,300 bears to add to their grand total of over 43,000 bears throughout the years.
