Hershey Bears Set Teddy Bear Toss Record With 34,798

The annual CommunityAid & WGAL Teddy Bear Toss is here!  Fans collect teddy bears to bring them to Giant Center.  Once the first goal for Hershey is scored, the chaos ensues.  Teddy bears fly all over the stadium to be given as a donations for the kids through CommunityAid.  Fans love it and it is for a good cause.  This is something the NHL should consider.

Check out the stats from the last few years:

Last six seasons of teddy bear toss goal scorers.

The current record is 28,815 teddy bears thrown by the Calgary Hitmen in 2015.  There has been a social media push by fans with the hashtag #Hershey30KChallenge to break the record this season.  One of the biggest contributors is Brock from The Old Barn Hockey Show.

Here are some videos of some of those goals and the fun that everyone has afterwards:
