A kids' Canucks jersey meant as a Christmas present was stolen from a back porch last week.

Canuck jersey Christmas present for toddler stolen

Can't be replaced, Maple Ridge single mother asks for it to be returned.

Just two and a half years old, Daxtyn Wagner is one one of the tiniest Canucks fan around.

That’s why for Christmas his mom Jaime got him his own pint-sized blue and green Canucks hockey jersey.

Custom-made with his name “Wagner” and his birth date “17” – also Ryan Kesler’s number – emblazoned on the back, the jersey was the most expensive item on the Maple Ridge single mom’s Christmas gift list.

“He really loves the hockey team,” said Jaime Wagner, who got a friend to make the jersey at a Canucks game in October.

Last Wednesday, Dec. 14, Jaime’s friend left the jersey on his back porch for her to pick up and wrap as a gift from Santa.

But when Jaime arrived to retrieve the bag, the jersey was gone. It was stolen sometime between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.

“We feel pretty stupid for leaving it outside,” says Jaime. “I’m hoping someone sees the jersey on another toddler and realizes it belongs to my son.”

Jaime is offering a small reward to the person who returns the jersey, no questions asked.

“It would mean the world to my son to have the jersey back,” she says.

• The jersey can be dropped off at the RCMP detachment in Maple Ridge or call Jaime Wagner at 604-250-6827.
