Delta/Northwest lost Stepan's gold medal

Quote:
Apparently, Stepan had the gold medal stashed in a checked bag because new flight regulations instituted in the wake of the latest terrorist scare prohibit carry-ons on international flights arriving in the U.S.

Stepan was returning from the World Juniors in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

"Just got off phone with Team USA captain Derek Stepan," Russo tweeted. "Airline lost all his bags, including his gold medal, bc no carry-ons out of Canada."

Several Team USA/Minnesota players and families still haven't received bags
about 3 hours ago from UberTwitter

Delta-Northwest RT @CMarzi84: @Russostrib what airline was it?
about 3 hours ago from UberTwitter

Just got off phone with Team USA captain Derek Stepan. Airline lost all his bags, including his gold medal, bc no carry-ons out of Canada

Quote:
Because of the new travel restrictions out of Canada into the U.S., no carry-ons are allowed other than holding your laptop. So Stepan put his gold medal in the carry-on. None of his bags has arrived, and Stepan says the airline doesn't know where they are. The tournament's leading scorer is holding out hope that the bags can be found because of what's inside.

Bingo. I have a feeling they'll find the bag and the medal soon enough though.

I can't wait to see my guy who sells me DVD's out of a shopping cart next week. He may have Derek Stepans Gold Medal. Like in Coming to America where the Royal luggage is stolen.

Yeah really, I'd be more pissed about losing my personal belongings which can be harder to replace.

I'd rather lose my clothes then my gold medal..

I'm surprised he would check a bag with his medal in it though. Should've just worn it till he got home.
