Islanders fans are being asked to get their teddy bears ready.
The Charlottetown Islanders’ annual teddy bear toss game will take place on Saturday, Dec. 12 as the team takes on the Drummondville Voltigeurs at the Eastlink Centre in Charlottetown.
Fans are encouraged to bring a teddy bear or stuffed animal to the game and send them flying to the ice after the first Islanders’ goal.
Islanders President of Operations Craig Foster says the teddy bear toss is a fun initiative for all involved.
“It’s fun for the players to see the bears flying on the ice after a goal, and of course it’s all for a great cause.”
The bears will be collected by Charlottetown Police Services who will then distribute the cuddly friends to charities across Prince Edward Island.
