Two Chicago Blackhawks players had their cars stolen while having dinner at a downtown restaurant, according to a report.

On Wednesday, December 29, the Blackhawks game in Chicago against the Winnipeg Jets was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns. TMZ reports Caleb Jones and Connor Murphy then decided to have dinner just blocks from the United Center.


While the pair were inside the restaurant, thieves allegedly approached the valet outside and struck him with an unknown object while demanding the car keys.

TMZ reports Murphy’s 2017 Porsche Panamera and Jones’ 2021 Jeep Trackhawk were both stolen.
