SSN Requirement for Shipping Across the Border (Sherwood)?

I recently purchased a Sherwood RM9 composite goal stick, which broke in the first period of the first game that I played with it. The pro shop at the rink where I purchased the stick was quite unhelpful, but I contacted Sherwood online and they have agreed to replace the stick (yay!).

However...

They're asking for a social security number from me because (and I'm quoting) "[they] need to cross the border".

I've had many items shipped to me from Canada in the past, including my most recent three sets of goalie equipment. Is this a recent requirement? Has anyone else had any experiences like this (successful or otherwise)?

I'm excited at the prospect of getting this stick replaced, but I'm (hopefully understandably) wary about identity theft.
