Brandon Wheat Kings Connor Gutenberg (who scored the goal that sent the teddy bears in the air) along with teammate Chad Nychuk made a special delivery of stuffed toys to the Pediatrics Ward at the Brandon Regional Health Centre on Tuesday, December 18. The toys were from the Wheat Kings Annual Teddy Bear Toss. This year’s event was the biggest yet for the Wheat Kings with 2,901 items collected! The game was held on December 15 where the Wheat Kings beat Saskatoon 6-5 in overtime! The Wheat Kings give the rest of the items collected to the Christmas Cheer Board who distribute them to many organizations who pass them along to children of all ages. The Brandon Regional Health Centre appreciates the Brandon Wheat Kings for their yearly donation of stuffed animals and taking the time to visit with the patients.
