I’ve heard about goalies stealing games…but this…

5-minute major?  Game misconduct?

On August 15th at 3:38 a.m., a break-in occurred at a beer store vendor in Russell, Manitoba.

Video surveillance caught two men entering the store and stealing cases of beer.

The first man was wearing mitts/gloves, a large coat, ball cap and had his face covered.

The second suspect that followed was dressed as a goalie.

However, he may have been a defenseman or forward in disguise as he was wearing jersey #17 – a non-traditional number for goalies.

He is described as having a medium build, wearing a blocker, trapper and carrying a goalie stick.

Anyone with information about this theft or has played against a goalie matching this description is asked to callRussell RCMP @ 204-773-3051
