The Stockton Thunder announced a total of 4,706 stuffed toy animals were collected and donated to local nonprofit agencies after the Thunder’s seventh annual “Teddy Bear Toss” game on Jan. 21 against the Las Vegas Wranglers at Stockton Arena.

The Thunder defeated Las Vegas 7-5 and rookie center Jesse Fratkin scored the Thunder’s first goal of the game with a second left in the first period which ignited a showering of stuffed animals onto the ice by fans.

The event drew a crowd of 7,405 this year to Stockton Arena and aims to help deliver new or gently used teddy bears and other stuffed animals from the hands of hockey fans across the San Joaquin Valley to local nonprofit agencies, courtesy of the United Way of San Joaquin County.
