Two 2017 Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup rings have been stolen in Etobicoke, police say.
They were taken during a break and enter Monday in the The East Mall and Burnhamthorpe Rd. area, police say.
The rings belonged to former Penguins defenceman Cameron Gaunce, who now plays for the Syracuse Crunch in the American Hockey League, and his wife.
Gaunce is originally from Sudbury.
“Last night, my brother and sister in laws Stanley Cup rings were stolen,” Utica Comets forward Brendan Gaunce tweeted Tuesday morning. “They were being kept in a safe, yet that didn’t stop the culprits from taking the entire safe out of the house.”
Cameron Gaunce’s ring is described as silver in colour, with an engraving of the NHL logo, the name “Gaunce” and the number 24. His wife’s ring is silver in colour.
Police are asking anyone with information to contact investigators at 416-808-2200 or Crime Stoppers.
