Langley, BC – On December 14th it’s the Rivermen’s 3rd
annual Teddy Bear Toss at the Langley Events Centre, so bring a teddy
and get in free to watch the Rivermen take on the Powell River Kings at
7:15pm. The teddy’s are to be thrown onto the ice following the
Rivermen’s first goal of the game and will be donated to Langley
The Teddy Bear Toss has become a Christmas
tradition in hockey arenas across North America as the LEC and Rivermen
want to see you out to provide a furry friend for those in need. It’s a
tradition that started back in 1995 and since then more and more hockey
teams across the country have gotten on board with the event. In 2007, a
World Record was set for the most teddy bears collected as the capacity
crowd of just over 17,000 showered the ice with 26,919 stuffed bears.
Bear Toss Night also features a marquee matchup as the Powell River
Kings make their only visit to the LEC this year. The Kings are at the
top of the BCHL as they will battle it out with the Rivermen who lead
the BCHL Mainland Division and have been one of the hottest teams in the
league of late.
Come out to the LEC and bring a teddy bear or two Saturday December 14th
and you get in free to watch two of the best teams fight it out for the
top spot in the BCHL before heading into the holiday season. Fans are
encouraged to bring as many bears as they have to the event to help
support the Langley community.
Remember your ticket to the game is a Teddy Bear!
