The Grizzlies have been quick out of the gate on their Teddy Bear Toss night the last two years.

The previous season, also the day after Thanksgiving, Bryan Cameron scored 3:46 into the first period to tie the game against Alaska.
Ben Meisner narrowly missed winning ECHL Goaltender of the Week this past week. He went 2-1 with a .990 goals-against-average and a .958 save percentage. Brian Foster of Stockton went 3-0-0 with a 1.33 goals-against average and a save percentage of .954 last week.
This marks the first Thanksgiving weekend since 2005, that Utah hasn’t played Victoria or Alaska at home and it marks the eighth time in the last nine years that the Grizzlies have been home for Thanksgiving.
