The mother of a teenage girl who’s hockey equipment was stolen calls the generosity they’ve received “overwhelming.” Someone broke into Robin Tomaszewksi’s car and stole her 13-year-old daughter Jordyn’s goalie gear, worth $2,700. The Tomaszewksis have been searching online for the items to show up. But now, strangers are helping Jordyn get back on the ice, and have pitched in to get her new gear. Jordyn was fitted with near gear Saturday at Total Hockey in Minnetonka with the help of Gongshow Gear.
