CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada announced on Wednesday that all of Sidney Crosby’s equipment from the gold medal game at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games has been recovered and is in the process of being returned.

Following Canada’s 3-2 overtime victory over the United States in the men’s hockey Olympic gold medal game on February 28, the game stick and one of the gloves that Crosby was using when he scored the game-winning goal went missing in the process of packing and shipping team and player equipment.

Scott Salmond, Hockey Canada’s director of men’s national teams, led a search for the equipment by communicating with various team and event staff as well as partners over the past week to track various shipments. The stick and glove were eventually located this week with other shipments and are being sent to Sidney Crosby.

“I want to thank everyone at VANOC, the team equipment managers, a number of Hockey Canada partners and the International Ice Hockey Federation in helping us track and locate several shipments to find the missing items,” said Salmond. “With everyone’s cooperation, we were able to locate these items and are pleased to be able to return the stick and glove to its rightful owner.”

Crosby’s game hockey stick was located as part of a shipment heading to the IIHF Hall of Fame. The stick was provided to the IIHF on the belief that it was not the game stick. The IIHF assisted Hockey Canada in locating the shipment and providing photographs of the stick to Sidney Crosby, who confirmed that this was the game stick.

The missing glove was located by Team Canada teammate Patrice Bergeron, who found the missing glove which had been inadvertently placed in one of his equipment bags.

Both the game stick and glove are en route to Sidney Crosby.
