The Holiday Season is fast approaching and that means teddy bears will begin to take flight across the Ontario Hockey League!
Bears hit the ice this coming weekend with five Teddy Bear Toss games set to take place in Kingston on Friday, Erie and Flint on Saturday and Oshawa and Sault Ste. Marie on Sunday.
Last year, OHL fans donated a grand total of 72,282 furry friends league-wide, with the Hamilton Bulldogs collecting a league high 12,550 followed by the Kitchener Rangers (10,630) and London Knights (8,763). The stuffed toys were distributed to over 65 different charitable organizations located throughout OHL communities that serve families and children in need at Christmas.
