Teddy Bear Toss Announced

The North Vancouver Wolf Pack is partnering with Family Services of the North Shore to present Teddy Bear Toss night on Saturday, December 11th. This is the 2nd ever Teddy Bear Toss game that the Wolf Pack will be hosting. Fans are encouraged to bring teddy bears to the game and when the Wolf Pack score their first goal of the game, fans can throw the stuffed animals onto the ice. We’ll collect the stuffies so that the teddy bears can then be donated to the North Shore Christmas Bureau where they will be gifted to families and children to ensure that every child in our community has a smile on their face come Christmas Day. 

 

Final Words

Tonight is the third of six meetings between North Vancouver and Delta. The Pack have won the first two meetings already as they won the first game on September 21 6-1 and won the second meeting in Delta 5-4 in overtime on November 23. After the game tonight, the Pack are back in action tomorrow to take on the Grandview Steelers to hopefully finish a game that took place, but wasn’t finished in Grandview from September 26. Kaj Burgess was injured in that game at the 12:21 mark of the second period which is when play will start tomorrow night.
