Chicago, IL, United States (4E Sports) – Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford reported that some of his playing equipment was stolen after Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Soldier Field.
Crawford said his pair of goalie pads and his gloves were stolen, after his Stadium Series mask went missing last week.
“No, I didn’t find the mask, and you’re not going to believe this, but my pads got stolen at Soldier Field — white pads, gloves,” Crawford said. “Yeah, I was stunned, too, when I heard it.”
“I don’t even know what to think anymore, seriously. I’m stunned by the whole thing,” Crawford said, adding that he was told security may have caught the theft on camera.
“Actually, I do think they did catch someone on camera,” he said. “I still can’t believe it. I think they’re joking. I think they have my pads in back and they’re playing a joke on me.
Crawford has been able to find humor in his misfortune.
“We were joking around that we may see the guy on Johnny’s [IceHouse West] ice before we get out there,” Crawford said.
