That’s why the Canada goalie can’t just rent equipment

With his kit not arriving in Davos, Team Canada goalie Michael DiPietro is doomed to watch. But does it really have to be?


Without his own helmet and skates, it would have been difficult for the three-time champion goalie Lukas Flüeler.

So far, Connor Hughes (26) has provided the main story for the comeback of the Spengler Cup with his commitment for Team Canada. The fact that the Friborg goalie, who had made his debut for the Swiss national team before Christmas, was even called to Davos as a Swiss-Canadian dual citizen is thanks to the luggage bad luck of keeper colleague Michael DiPietro (23). His goalie equipment got stuck on the way across the Atlantic to Davos.

But why can’t DiPietro just borrow equipment from another goalie? Especially since HC Davos offered him those of Sandro Aeschlimann. Or couldn’t his team have gotten him the equipment from a hockey shop in Switzerland? Blick asked someone who should know: the three-time champion goalie and current MySports expert Lukas Flüeler (34).
