Teddy bears to fly at upcoming Senior Flyers Teddy Bear Toss

Hockey fans encouraged to bring a new teddy bear with them to Saturday’s game, and when the Senior Flyers score their first goal, fans will get to throw their teddy bears on the ice.

Participants are being asked to wrap their bears in plastic or a shopping bag, to avoid any damage potentially caused by the ice.

All the bears will be donated to the local Salvation Army, which provides an extremely valuable service to the community, especially around the holiday season.

Saturday’s game begins at 8:30 p.m. at the North Peace Arena, and is game one of a home-and-home series with the Hythe Mustangs.

The two-game series will conclude on Thursday, December 20, when the Senior Flyers take on the Mustangs in Hythe.
