NAHL's Johnstown Tomahawks to hold underwear toss during game
You have already heard of the teddy bear toss. But are you ready for the underwear toss?
By now you have already seen the teddy bear toss hockey teams have during the holiday season a countless number of times, but one junior league team is preparing to go in a very different direction this weekend.
The Johnstown Tomahawks, a junior team in the North American Hockey League, announced on Wednesday night that they will be holding an underwear toss during their game on Sunday against the Springfield Junior Blues to help needy families.
They're calling the whole thing "Undies Sunday."

The NAHL is a Junior A Tier II league that has been around since 1975. It currently has 24 teams, including the Tomahawks, who relocated from Alaska where they were known as the Alaska Avalanche prior to the 2012-13 season. That move followed the ECHL's Johnstown Chiefs' move to South Carolina.
The Tomahawks play their home games in Johnston, PA, at the Cambria County War Memorial arena which was also the location for the movie Slap Shot.
