Each season around the holidays, the IceHogs host the Teddy Bear Toss game. Fans are invited to bring new stuffed animals to the 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.
In 2021, a record-setting 4,753 stuffed animals were donated to the cause, bringing the grand total of stuffed animals donated in the history of the event in Rockford to over 48,000.
