There's big bucks in store for the person who can turn in Sidney Crosby's missing hockey gear.

Reebok Canada is offering a $10,000 reward, no questions asked, for the return of the stick and glove Crosby used to score his winning goal in last weekend's gold-medal game against the U.S.

The equipment disappeared after the hockey star tossed his stick and ripped off his gloves to celebrate Canada's Olympic victory last Sunday.

Reebok spokesman Len Rhodes told CTV the company just wants the now legendary pieces of Olympic history back.

Hockey Canada says all of the equipment from the game was collected and was being put into the players' bags when it was noticed Crosby's stick and glove were missing

The organization is trying to figure out what happened and security officers are reviewing video that shows people leaving the rink with sticks.

If the gear is returned, Crosby can decide to keep the items in his trophy case or give them to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

This isn't the first time some of Crosby's gear has vanished.

In 2005, Crosby's jersey went missing after Canada's gold medal win over Russia at the world junior hockey championship in Grand Forks, North Dakota.

It was later found in a mailbox outside a post office in Lachute, Quebec.
