Annual Teddy Bear Toss Game Taking Place on Thursday's PHA Night Bring your teddies and let them fly when the Petes score their first goal on Thursday

(Peterborough, ON) - The Peterborough Petes' annual Teddy Bear Toss night will take place this upcoming Thursday, December 7 when the Petes take on the visiting Sudbury Wolves at the Peterborough Memorial Centre at 7:05pm.

When the Petes score their first goal of the game, fans will be invited to throw their new stuffed toys, toques, or mittens onto the ice. At that time, volunteers from local minor hockey teams will help collect the toys from the ice, which will be counted and delivered by Winslow-Gerolamy Motors Limited to the Energy 99.7/ Country 105 Miracle Toy Drive.

Dozens of minor hockey teams will be in attendance as part of the annual Peterborough Hockey Association Night. Captains of PHA teams will take part in a pre-game ceremonial puck drop.

The Salvation Army Band will be entertaining fans with holiday classics in the East Lobby, and will perform the national anthem.

Other groups on hand will include Peterborough Musicfest (diner card sales), Snofest Idol (finalists singing in the North Lobby), and the 7 MD White Tyke team (raffle ticket sales).


Following Thursday's game, the Petes will hit the road to southwestern Ontario. They'll face the Knights in London on Friday, December 8 at 7:30pm, then travel to Sarnia to take on the Sting on Saturday, December 9 at 7:05pm. The Petes will play their final home game before Christmas on Thursday, December 14 at 7:05pm against the Ottawa 67's.
