During a December 22, 2009 game between the Penguins and the New Jersey Devils, Steigerwald was criticized by many hockey fans and veterans for an off-joke he made concerning hockey hall of famer, Hobey Baker. Steigerwald's co-commentator, Bob Errey stated that during hit on the Devils' Mike Mottau, who won the Hobey Baker Award at Boston College in 2000, by the Penguins' Craig Adams, that "The Hobey Baker winner went down... real hard." Steigerwald responded by saying, "Not as hard as Hobey Baker went down, though. He went down in a plane crash. That's pretty hard to go down there." Steigerwald then added that "I don't mean to laugh about how he left us," but continued to chuckle about the situation for several more seconds.[2] Baker, an American fighter pilot in World War I, was killed shortly after the war end, in an airplane accident. Ironically, the crash occurred on December 21st, 1918, exactly 91 years to the day the remark was made.
