The Hershey Bears didn't just break their own Teddy Bear Toss record Sunday, they shattered it.
Fans of the Washington Capitals American Hockey League affiliate tossed more than 45,000 stuffed bears onto the ice after Christian Djoos' first-period goal against Hartford.
Hershey previous set the record when 34,798 stuffed bears were donated during its Teddy Bear Toss game last season, breaking the previous world record set by Calgary of the Western Hockey League in 2015.
But when all the bears were counted Hershey had collected 45,650 stuffed animals, which will be donated to children at local charities.
The players went wild by hopping into the massive bear piles then celebrated for real after Brett Leason's overtime goal boosted Hershey to a 4-3 win.
