Calgary Hitmen forward Radel Fazleev pulled the trigger of the 20th annual Petro-Canada Teddy Bear Toss on Dec. 17 at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
Before a near capacity crowd of 17,543, the Russian import netted the game's opening goal to lead the Hitmen to a 8-3 triumph over the Moose Jaw Warriors and prompt the tossign of 25,214 stuffed toys onto the ice.

"The King of Pop’s got nothing on Radel Fazleev. The Calgary Hitmen import centre scored the Teddy bear goal ... and then moonwalked through the stuffed animals." -- Calgary Sun
