Penn State Men’s Hockey To Host Teddy Bear Toss Benefiting THON December 4

It’s time to gather up your teddy bears, folks.

After going virtual last season, Penn State men’s hockey will host its annual Teddy Bear Toss on Saturday, December 4, when the Nittany Lions take on Michigan State.

Normally, the team would unveil an official stuffed bear for its Teddy Bear Toss every year, and fans could purchase them around campus to benefit THON before chucking them onto the ice. For now, it seems that fans are encouraged to bring their own bears to toss, too. Nevertheless, it is still one of Penn State hockey’s best traditions.

During the last in-person Teddy Bear Toss in 2019, more than a thousand bears were thrown onto the ice and donated to childhood cancer patients and other underprivileged children.
