This is a fantastic tradition!!!
At a Calgary Hitmen game over the weekend, 25,921 teddy bears were thrown onto the ice after they scored a goal.
It’s called a “Teddy Bear Toss!”
This is becoming more popular among minor league teams, as a promotion, and it should be for every team EVER!
When the home team scores their first goal, everyone in the crowd throws teddy bears into the rink, which are then gathered up and given to needy families and children.
And also it looks pretty magical!!!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
It looks like Sean Avery is taking a slap shot at love!
The former NHL stud has confirmed that he is engaged to his model girlfriend of three years, Hilary Rhoda, and the two are planning on tying the knot sometime next year!
The happy couple made the announcement, saying:
Remember Serge the llama??
We previously mentioned he was kidnapped by drunk teens in France and taken on a train ride.
Since his wild ride, Serge has become a bit of a celebrity!
His hometown of Bordeaux has embraced his stardom and are celebrating their famous llama whenever they can.
This past Sunday, Serge got the chance to meet with the Bordeaux Boxers, an ice hockey team.
The team was glad to welcome the famous llama into their locker room and even posed for some pictures with the cutie llama.
Serge is getting to do all the ahmayzing things he's ever wanted to do but couldn't because he's a llama.
Just earlier that day Serge had visited Stade Chaban-Delmas stadium before his home team FC Girondins de Bordeaux's played the FC Nantes.
Way to take a kidnapping (llamanapping?) and turn it into something positive!
Serge, you are just too cute for words.

It’s no secret that hockey is a fast-paced, emotional game, but what happens when the coach is mad?
THIS happens! Ha!
Éric Veilleux coaches the Baie-Comeau Drakkar in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, and after a bad call during Friday’s game, he completely lost it after a call that he didn't like!
He took SIX of his players’ hockey sticks and threw them! Veilleux was fined $1,000 and suspended for two games.
But it was worth it (above)!
Tim Robbins might originally be a SoCal boy, but now it looks like he's all East Coast!
With the hockey season in full swing and winter JUST around the corner, the veteran actor decided to lace up and show off some of his skills with some friends!
But instead of hitting an ice skating rink, they decided to keep things simple and play some street hockey in New York!
We're guessing the rink at the Rockefeller Center was a bit too crowded! LOLz!
Tim and his friends didn't let the weather get to them either, as they braved the rain and played in some pretty slippery conditions!
Looks like these guys should have brought some helmets with them! Better safe than sorry, fellas!
Ch-ch-check out more pics of Timmy showing off his hockey skills (below)!

Instagram isn't completely just for showing off your rockin' body! NOPE! In fact, it has other uses!
You could use it to upload pictures of food, or maybe your cat — OR AN ENGAGEMENT RING!! That's right, Paulina Gretzky, Wayne Gretzky's daughter, is engaged to PGA pro Dustin Johnson!
Check out that ROCK (above)!
The caption she posted along with the pic says it all:
"Never Been Happier."
CONGRATS to you both!!
We're so happy for you guys! And we're sure Paulina's poppa is just as ecstatic!

Another day in the life of seksi Liam Payne!
While the One Direction boys are traveling on tour, some of them are making sure to stay in shape.
And Liam is definitely a gym rat!
In the pic (above) the crooner had to find the best, most convenient gym around, so he went to the Vancouver Canucks facility.
Unlike Justin Bieber though, he made sure not to stand on any team insignia while pumping iron.
Please post more, Liam! Because you’re shirtless and hawt as heck!!!
