Attendees at an AHL Game Set a World Record by Tossing 50,000 Stuffed Animals on the Ice

The feat breaks the last record set in 2019. 

After a score, the crowd went wild in Hershey, Pennsylvania, by throwing teddy bears onto the ice. Dozens and dozens — actually thousands and thousands — kept on coming. 

Over 50,000 teddy bears and stuffed animals were collected during the Hershey Bears AHL game versus the Hartford Wolf Pack. 

And a new world record was set that breaks the last record set in 2019. 

And although hockey has a reputation as a rough sport, there was a sweet side to this game.

The stuffed animals collected will be donated to over 25 organizations for children to enjoy.
