While taking some time to walk around Vancouver on Sunday during the club's scheduled day off after a 3-1 loss to the Calgary Flames on Saturday night, the Ottawa Senators' defenceman foiled a robbery attempt in the Gastown district of this city of more than 2.5 million people.

According to Vancouver police, Borowiecki witnessed an attempted robbery in progress as a bag was taken from a vehicle on Sunday afternoon.

Borowiecki witnessed an unidentified person breaking into a parked auto. Borowiecki managed to wrestle the person to the ground and retrieved a bag they had allegedly stolen from the auto. As the suspect attempted to flee, the veteran defenseman clotheslined the thief off a bike and wrestled him to the ground.

Vancouver Police said on Monday that the alleged thief got away, but "Mr. Borowiecki was able to retrieve the property", which was returned to the original owners. "We are grateful for [Mark's] assistance and do recommend that if anybody does witness a crime to immediately notify the Vancouver Police and to stay safe". No arrests have been made.

The 30-year-old has skated in 27 games with the Sens this season, recording 10 points - one shy of his career high.
