So someone stole a glove from the Islanders bench after their last game at Nassau Coliseum, the Game 6 win against the Capitals. I guess as far as souvenirs go, it's cheaper than a $20 tiny bottle of melted ice and slightly less embarrassing than a broken seat, but nevertheless the glove doesn't belong to the guy who currently has it in his possession.
The actual owner of the glove is Islanders forward Colin McDonald, who reached out to Newsday's Arthur Staple to voice his unconcern.
Just exchanged texts with Colin McDonald regarding The Great Glove Theft. "Tell them I'm over it!" #Isles— Arthur Staple (@StapeNewsday) May 18, 2015
McDonald wasn't too upset about it right after Game 6 either, for the record. I think the #Isles feel the same way.— Arthur Staple (@StapeNewsday) May 18, 2015
A picture of the suspect has been circulated through local papers and television news broadcasts. If you know this guy, or you are him and are reading this right now, the police would like a word with you (and thanks for reading!).
If this seems like a minor and perhaps mostly victim-less crime, that might be because as a franchise, the Islanders are often involved in more high-profile schemes.
But seriously, let's get McDonald's glove back. Together, we can bring this fugitive to justice. Right, Sam?
