The Hershey Bears released their promotional schedule for the 2021-22 season on Wednesday. The biggest news of the release is that the team’s Teddy Bear Toss, in its original and most pure form, will be returning in 2022.
Fans will be able to bring stuffed toys into Giant Center and throw them onto the ice after the Bears’ first goal. In 2019, the last time it was held during a game, Bears fans set the World Record by having 45,650 stuffed animals thrown down onto the playing surface.
The game will be held January 22, 2022, against the Hartford Wolf Pack.
Last year, due to the pandemic, the Bears held a drive-thru event outside of the arena, but still got strong and support and collected 31,281 stuffed toys.
