The Royals host the Seattle Thunderbirds, fifth in the US Division, on Friday and Saturday.

The first 2,000 fans through the doors Saturday night will receive 2019-20 Royals’ collectible hockey cards. Royals season tickets, half-season tickets and fan pack tickets get the first crack at the cards from 6 to 6:30 p.m. with the gift and giveaway card.

Also on Saturday is the club’s annual Teddy Bear Toss. Game-goers are encouraged to bring new or gently used teddy bears to toss onto the ice when the Royals score their first goal. The bears are dried, cleaned and donated to numerous local charities including the Salvation Army, the Mustard Seed Street Church and Food Bank, the Pediatric ward at the Victoria General Hospital and more.

Since the Royals’ inaugural season in 2011, the team has collected more than 30,000 teddy bears.

Get tickets in person at the Select Your Tickets box office, by calling 250-220-7777, or online at selectyourtickets.com.
