Hockey team shatters world record with 35,000 stuffed animals thrown on ice

The Hershey Bears hockey team from Hershey, Pennsylvania shattered a world record Sunday.

After the Bears (minor league affiliate of the Washington Capitals) scored their first goal against the Binghamton Devils, fans threw nearly 35,000 stuffed animals on the ice.

The stuffed animals were collected and donated for children in need for the holidays.

The official total was 34,798 toys.

The event, called Teddy Bear Toss, is a practice popular among minor league hockey teams where fans are asked to bring stuffed animals and toss them on the ice after the home team's first goal.
