Local hockey fans participated in a Teddy Bear Toss during the first period of the Alpena High School hockey team’s game against Petoskey on Wednesday at Northern Lights Arena. Fans were asked to bring a teddy bear to the game and after Alpena scored its first goal, fans were instructed to toss their teddy bears on the ice. That moment came with 1:13 left in the period and dozens of teddy bears were thrown onto the ice. They were scooped up and bagged and will be donated to charity.
