Whalers Host Blood Drive and $5 Fridays, Then Teddy Bear Toss on Saturday

The first-place Plymouth Whalers (17-8-2-1) spend the next two weekends at home, starting Friday against Sault Ste. Marie (14-11-1-1) and Saturday against Guelph (12-9-1-3). Both games start at 7:05 p.m. at Compuware Arena.


Each game will be broadcast on WSDP-FM (88.1) starting at 6:45 p.m. on both evenings.

Besides the action on the ice, they’ll be plenty of activities around the arena on both evenings.

From noon-6 p.m. on Friday, the Whalers are hosting a blood drive in conjunction with the American Red Cross. Although some fans have booked appointments between noon and 2 p.m., there are plenty of appointments available from 2-5 p.m.


Anyone attempting to give blood will receive two tickets for an upcoming Whalers game.

Fans can book an appointment using this link.


The goal is to break the Whalers’ blood drive record of 48 pints.


Friday is another $5 Fridays night, sponsored by WYCD-FM (99.5). More people increasingly are taking advantage of $5 Fridays as the season wears on.


On Saturday, Plymouth host Guelph in the Whalers annual Teddy Bear Toss. Fans are cordially requested to bring a teddy bear or stuffed animal to the game.


The first time the Whalers score on Saturday – and Alex Aleardi scored a little over three minutes into the Teddy Bear game against London last season – throw the bear on the ice, and with the help of the Plymouth Community United Way, homes will be found for the animals.


As they have in past years, the Whalers Booster Club will be selling teddy bears before the game.

Next week, the Whalers host Belleville (17-9-0-0) on Friday and Sarnia (15-6-1-4) on Saturday before finishing up the pre-Christmas portion of the schedule Dec. 16 in Oshawa and Dec. 17 in Belleville.
