While tossing hats onto the ice when a player scores three goals might be hockey's most famous tossing tradition, it simply doesn't compare to the Technicolor grandeur of 23,096 teddy bears and other stuffed animals blanketing the rink as they did at the Calgary Hitmen game on Sunday:

It's a pretty common thing to happen around this time of year at rinks. I have never seen one like that though. Kudos to the fans and to the Hitmen for continuing the tradition. That will bring a lot of smiles to kids faces this year.


The Hit men own the record for the most thrown at a game as well, according to that article. Here's the video.



And here is one of the places all the bears from the other night went to, delivered by the players.

The morning after thousands of teddy bears rained from the sky at the Saddledome, players from the Calgary Hitmen were able to see first-hand the impact of Sunday’s teddy bear toss.

“When we can give back to the community, that’s pretty special for us, especially at a place like this,” captain Matt MacKenzie said about the Alberta Children’s Hospital.
