Thieves make away with a bounty of NHL watches from retired player

Police say the player wishes to remain anonymous but is urging local pawn shops to look out for the sentimental items. These include a silver TAG watch with the inscription “Once an Oiler, Always an Oiler,” and a gold face watch with the Stanley Cup and Edmonton Oiler’s logo.

They also made away with a Chicago All-Stars watch, a pair of world Championship watches – one from 1993 and one from 1994-two NHL Players Association watches and a Canada Cup time piece.
