My cousin was telling me about this earlier and I had to laugh. Apparently its not the first time one of Crosby's sticks have been jacked!

The scene at Canada Hockey Place last Sunday that inspired another Puck Daddy Photoshop contest also was the setting for the beginnings of a historical treasure hunt. In the aftermath of Sidney Crosby's(notes) gold medal winning goal against the United States, the Pittsburgh Penguins star threw his gloves and stick into the air as his Team Canada teammates mobbed him to celebrate. When the party on ice died down, every player except Crosby got every piece of equipment back.

One of Crosby's gloves and his mouthpiece were the only things recovered after the game and Vancouver police are currently searching for the now historic stick along with one of his gloves. Hockey Canada officials also viewed game video and checked various photos to try and track down clues as to the whereabouts of the now-famous artifacts.

Enter Reebok, Crosby's equipment sponsor. To help Hockey Canada recover the stick and glove, a "no questions asked" $10,000 reward is out there (it's a trap!) for anyone who returns the items. Gear of that magnitude would obviously draw plenty of interest, which is why you won't find any of it on eBay or up for bid at an auction house. Scott Salmond, the director of the men's national team for Hockey Canada, told the Globe & Mail he believes someone who entered the ice between the celebration and medal ceremony is the culprit

It doesn't surprise me at all to be honest with you, the guy who took it knew he could make good money out of the winning stick of the 2010 Gold Medal Hockey game, especially that it was from Crosby.

I think the last time it happened was in his first or second season, don't quite remember.

Well that is good to hear, at least no one tried to make some fat cash off of it. Just an honest mess up.
