VicPD said the team colours are black, gold and white, with “Banff Academy” written on the front of each.

The goalie’s gear included a blocker, catcher, chest and shoulder protector as well as pants and a goalie mask, all with CCM branding.

VicPD is asking anyone with information about the incident or the location of the equipment by calling 250-995-7654 or Crime Stoppers.
