Watch: LA Kings replace stolen jersey of San Bernardino shooting survivor

Thursday December 10th, 2015

The Los Angeles Kings replaced the Wayne Gretzky jersey that was stolen from a survivor of the Dec. 2 shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., which left 14 dead and 21 injured. 

Natassa Torralbo, who works at the Inland Regional Center where the shooting took place, had her house robbed while she attended a vigil for one of the victims. Along with jewelry and personal items taken from her home, her beloved Gretzky jersey was gone, as well. 

The Kings got hold of the news and surprised Torralbo on Sunday during Los Angeles’ 3–1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Torralbo attended the game and was greeted by Kings’ mascot Bailey, as he presented her with a brand new Gretzky jersey. 

Torralbo was emotional after receiving the gift and appreciative of the kind gesture. Despite being overwhelmed, Torralbo still let out a loud “Go Kings” chant.
