ST. LOUIS - Call off the search posse – the Blues' missing luggage has been found!
A Blues spokesman said Olympic team bags belonging to David Backes, T.J. Oshie and Alex Pietrangelo went missing February 26. The luggage picked up in Newark by Fed Ex and forwarded to St. Louis, but only 18 of the 21 pieces of luggage could be accounted for.
Backes confirmed late Friday morning that Fed Ex reached out to him and said the bags would be delivered to the players on either Monday or Tuesday.
Backes, in particular, had added incentive to get his bag back.His bag contained several pieces of Team USA memorabilia which he planned to auction for charity.
