Petro-Canada Teddy Bear Toss

Calgary Hitmen forward Jordy Stallard pulled the trigger of the 21st annual Petro-Canada Teddy Bear Toss on Dec. 6 at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
 
Before a sellout crowd of 19,289, the 18-year-old Stallard netted the game’s opening goal to lead the Hitmen to a 2-1 shootout win over the Swift Current Broncos and prompt the tossing of a record-setting 28,815 stuffed toys onto the ice.
