Saturday is the very popular annual Teddy Bear Toss game at the Spokane Arena, presented by the Spokesman-Review Christmas Fund. Fans are encouraged to bring teddy bears to the game to throw on the ice after the Chiefs score their first goal. The bears will be collected and distributed to Spokane area youth this holiday season.

The Chiefs are 19-12-0-2 after Wednesday’s 5-3 victory over the Everett Silvertips. They are 6th in the Western Conference and 4th in the U.S. Division with 40 points. The Cougars (12-17-2-3) are 4-5-1-0 in their last 10 games, including a 3-1 loss to Kootenay on Tuesday.

Spokane won the first game between the two clubs, 5-2 behind four unanswered goals in the 2nd and 3rd periods. Mitch Holmberg scored twice and added two helpers, Jason Fram had a goal and two assists and Reid Gow had 3 assists.

Former Chief Todd Fiddler, since being traded to the Cougars in November, has 10 goals and 10 assists in just 14 games with his new club.

Tickets for Saturday's Teddy Bear Toss and all Chiefs home games are available in-person at the Chiefs' Ticket Office, over the phone at (509) 535-PUCK, via TicketsWest outlets and online atwww.ticketswest.com.
