I think I post this every year, but here's this year's!

There are many reasons why Teddy Bear Toss time is our favorite time of the year on the hockey calendar.

First, it's a promotion that involves charity, and that's always cool with us. Charity is our jam.

Second, it brings the hockey fan community together as one, like jeering an opponent with a funny chant or booing Gary Bettman or participating in the wave … OK, maybe not that last one, but you see our point.

Third, FLYING TEDDY BEARS!


It's actually kinda terrifying from ice-level:

In the second video, I see Pikachu around the one minute mark and a second or two later, I think a stuffed Cthulhu comes flying in from the right!

That's just too, well, charming and fun.

But honestly, it didn't look like more than 19,750 teddy bears to me.

I assumed GrogNads threw the Pikachu.

That's better than the dead squids that get tossed onto the ice at one arena.

At one point the NHL was fining any fan caught tossing octopi onto the ice $500. Not sure if that's still in effect in Detroit. Security was confiscating them at the door if they were found, so people were getting creative about smuggling them in.
