After a Chandler youth hockey team had a trailer full of equipment stolen on Sunday morning, the Arizona Coyotes stepped up to help replace the missing gear.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Lawson Crouse and president and CEO Ahron Cohen will be donating $20,000 to the Arizona Bobcats hockey team as they prepare for the upcoming season.

The Bobcats, based out of Ice Den Chandler, had requested help from the public in recovering the stolen trailer full of equipment through a Facebook post that included information on who may have taken the load and how to contact the Chandler Police Department.

The Coyotes organization was among the first to react and share the post on Sunday. On Monday the team tweeted out that it was going to step up and provide further assistance.

Although the culprit was still not found as of noon on Monday, Ice Den Chandler believes the trailer was taken by a man driving a Toyota Sequoia with the license plate located in the back window.

The trailer of equipment contained trailer plate No. 24341C.

Anyone with more information was requested to call Chandler PD non-emergency silent tip line at 480-782-4440.
