First goal triggers teddy toss

The Nanaimo Clippers haven’t had any trouble scoring goals against the Powell River Kings this season, so get your teddy bears ready.

Saturday’s game (Dec. 1) is the return of the Teddy Bear Toss, an annual event for Clippers fans to have some fun and help the team support the Great Nanaimo Toy Drive.

The Clippers are asking fans to bring a new or gentlyused teddy bear to toss onto the ice surface when Nanaimo scores its first goal of the game.

“This is an event that our fans look forward to every year,” said Jen Kennedy, the Clips’ director of sales and marketing.

“I believe that we have some of the most generous fans in the game of hockey and we are excited to continue our support of the Nanaimo Toy Drive.”

The Clippers host the Kings at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena. Tickets available at 250-751-0593.
