25,000 Bears Fly at Teddy Bear Toss - Calgary Hitmen

Wooo! One of the greatest things you'll ever see at a junior hockey game is the Teddy Bear Toss. 25 000 bears are brought in and thrown on the ice the moment the home team scores. The anticipation in the building is comparable to an overtime game as everyone is waiting to toss their bear. Watch 25 000 bears raining on the ice (watch the Kootenay team leave very quickly after the goal was scored) it took nearly 45 minutes to clean the ice and load the bears on to trucks before the game resumed.
