Corey Crawford’s pads missing after Soldier Field game
If a pair of well-worn, red-and-white pads show up on eBay or Craigslist, Corey Crawford might be interested.
Crawford said his usual pads were apparently stolen from Soldier Field on Saturday. Crawford was wearing specially made black pads during the Stadium Series game, and was wearing them again at Monday’s practice.
It’s been a rough week for Crawford, whose specially designed Stadium Series mask never showed up last week, either.
“This is crazy,” he said. “I’ve never seen this before. I’ve never heard of this before. It’s crazy, man. The trainers are all stunned that it happened. Honestly, I told every guy and some of the guys didn’t believe it happened.”
Crawford said he likes the black pads, and that they’re already well broken-in. But he certainly wasn’t planning an equipment change this late in the season.
“Those are the ones I wear all the time — gone,” he said. “I was speechless.”
