Update: The luggage has been found.
The St. Louis Blues featured a few notable faces during the Winter Games in Sochi; David Backes, T.J. Oshie and Alex Pietrangelo in specific.
Oshie became #TJSochi after his repeated shootout goals in a Team USA win against Russia. Backes and his wife went above and beyond helping save the Sochi strays. Pietrangelo, won gold with Canada.
Today the team reached out to the public in an effort to find 3 bags that have gone missing. The bags were picked up by FedEx in Newark, New Jersey on February 26th to make their way to St. Louis; since then…
“In Backes’ case, his bag contained several Team-USA signed pieces of memorabilia that he had planned on using to raise money in an event later this month,” said Dan O’Neill a team representative.
The team realizes that these frustrating situations happen to people every day and have followed protocol with FedEx. The hope is that reaching out to the public will provide the players a happy outcome.
