The Hitmen's Teddy Bear Toss tradition has been around for nearly 20 years, benefitting many local charities. However, over the last few seasons, it has become an outright phenomenon.

Hats off to the fans of the Calgary Hitmen. 17,000+ fans donated more than 25,000+ teddy bears.

There is some video on it. So apparently after the hitmen's first goal of the game is the time to launch your bear down onto the ice. Raining bears for a couple minutes.

It is a fantastic event, the Hitmen run a great, community minded junior hockey organization. Lots of other teams in the WHL do this sort of thing, and having been to a few of these games, it is amazing to be there and be a part of. The players skate back to the benches and the goalies hide in their nets during the barrage.

Yep, that's how it goes. Every year, QS and I pull the new videos up on Youtube. He makes random comments and laughs, and I cry. Cause I'm a sap that way.

Guess I know what we're watching tonight.
