KAMLOOPS — After teddy bears showered the ice at the Sandman Centre the Kamloops Blazers paid a visit to Royal Inland Hospital last night (December 6) personally delivering some of the more than 2,400 bears.

Groups of players spent time with many patients, offering a toy from Saturday's Teddy Bear Toss.

It's an annual tradition for the Blazers, who have for the last 24 years been going to RIH to deliver Christmas cheer.

Among the patients they visited, the players were impressed by a 12 year old boy, who was hospitalized after being stepped on by a bull.
