The theft of Tyler Bunz's goalie mask isn't the oddest thing to be stolen from a professional hockey goaltender this month, but can somebody please help the former Western Hockey League goaltender out?
The former Medicine Hat Tiger is en route to Edmonton in advance of Oilers training camp, but somewhere between Kelowna and Edmonton, his mask was stolen out of his hockey bag.
We're assuming the bag managed to make it.
As you can see the mask is painted in Oilers colours and has his name right on the front, which should make it easy to spot and harder to sell.
Helmet was stolen from my bag flying Air Canada from Kelowna to Edmonton, if anyone knows anything or sees it online please let me know

Air Canada's baggage services are on the case. In case you're in the Kelowna area and happen to see the mask at the top of this post, I guess you should contact your local authorities? It may be tough going through the Oilers—even No. 1 overall pick Nail Yakupov has a tough time getting through.
