During my time in Canada I went to a few ice hockey games. Many of the games were Heat games which is the team of the town I am studying in (Abbotsford Heat). These games were really good because we were able to sit right near the action 😀 However, the best ice hockey game I went to was in Vancouver. It was the Vancouver Canucks vs Chicago Blackhawks. The teams are apart of the National Hockey League (NHL)!! The game was a lot of fun and the stadium was alive with lights and noise!

Another game I went to was the Teddy Bear Toss. This game was played by Abbotsford Heat. This particular match is given the name Teddy Bear Toss because as soon as the Heat score, everyone throws a teddy bear onto the ice. The teddy bears are then collected and given to children who are in hospital. For this game, we were lucky to be right near the action, as well as having a teddy bear to help support children in hospital.
Having a blast!
