February 26th will likely be a trade deadline day that Calgary Flames' defenceman Dion Phaneuf will remember, but for all the wrong reasons after having his S.U.V. stolen.

The All-Star defenceman had to catch a lift to the Saddledome with Calgary police after making a stop at a local Starbucks for a pre-game coffee.  Phaneuf left his SUV running and he came back out just in time to see the perpetrator rolling away.

Phaneuf did not want to discuss the incident following the Flames overtime loss to the Avalanche.

"I'm not going to talk about it. Its out of my hands."
