The Kitchener Rangers will host their 24th annual teddy bear toss game on Tuesday, December 11.
Oshawa will be here for a 7 p.m. start.
The bears will flood the ice following the Rangers' first goal.
Close to 11,000 teddy bears and other stuffed toys were collected in 2017, which is a team record.
And in the first 23 years, Kitchener fans have donated over 143,000 plush toys that have been distributed to local charities.
The team is out with a list of guidelines and restrictions:
SIZE: The most asked for bears are the small to medium-large! Giant bears are fun, but are harder to re-home.
MATERIAL: Steer clear of any bears with battery packs or larger hard surfaces. The toss is meant to be enjoyable for all fans and throwing a hard object could cause injury to someone in the crowd. Fluffy and soft is the way to go!
CLEAN: It’s important we keep these stuffies dry and clean for their future owners. Remember to place bears in a clear plastic bag. We will have some plastic bags available at the game. This will ensure they don’t pick up any dirt or water on the ice or ground.
More information can be found on the team's website.
