The 19th annual Petro-Canada Teddy Bear Toss Game was played on Sunday, December 1, 2013 when the Calgary Hitmen hosted the Medicine Hat Tigers.
Fans were asked to bring a stuffed toy (or two) to the game and toss it on the ice when the Hitmen scored their first goal. All stuffed toys would then be shared amongst local charities in time for the holiday season, including the Cerebral Palsy Assocation, Salvation Army, Boys and TEDDY BEAR GOAL 2013!! Girls Clubs, Alberta Children’s Hospital, etc.
For the second season in a row, Pavel Padakin scores the 19th annual Petro-Canada Teddy Bear Toss goal at 3:42 of the second period. Radel Fazleev and Alex Roach set up the highly-anticipated goal!
Fun fact: this was discussed on the national NBC Nightly News. Big time!
