The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles announced today that the team will host two free skates, a teddy bear toss, a food drive, and have launched a holiday family package for the month of December.
The Screaming Eagles will host the first of two holiday skates on Sunday, December 2nd at the Emera Centre Northside from 1:30 PM to 2:20 PM.

On Saturday, December 8th, the Screaming Eagles will hold their annual Teddy Bear Toss game when the Québec Remparts, coached by Patrick Roy, make their only visit of the season to Centre 200. This annual event is presented by Max 98.3 and plush toys collected will be distributed by the Salvation Army and Every Women’s Centre. Fans attending the game are encouraged to bring a teddy bear or plush toy to throw on the ice when the Screaming Eagles score their first goal.
Sunday, December 30th will be the beginning of the annual Hurley Cup series between the Screaming Eagles and the Halifax Mooseheads. The Screaming Eagles will play the first game against the Mooseheads on December 30th at 2 PM at Centre 200, and the second game the following day at 2 PM at the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax.
