London Knights keep 'Teddy Bear Toss' alive in new format
LONDON, ONTY. -- The London Knights are trying a different play to keep a favourite tradition alive and help those in need.
With COVID-19 putting the OHL on hold, the Knights won't be able to have their usual Teddy Bear Toss this year.
So the team has come up with a new take on the tradition.
In the past, the team has picked a game where fans could rain stuffed toys onto the ice after the first Knights' goal.
This year they're doing a teddy bear drop-off, with fans encouraged to bring stuffed toys to the parking lot of Budweiser Gardens on Dec. 13 between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
All the items collected will go to local charities.
They will also be accepting hats and mittens for kids up to 12 years old.
