Every year around the end of October, we get to see the goofy personalities of NHL players come to life. We’re used to seeing the on-ice creativity of the world’s best hockey players, but off the ice…?
Today we’ll take a look at some of the best and worst NHL Halloween costumes of all time.
- Raffi Torres as Jay-Z
Cause for plenty of controversy, Torres dressed up as his favourite rap artist. Although Torres’ costume resembles the looks of Jay-Z, many found it to be distasteful.
- Sid and Evgeni
Hmm, not sure exactly what they’re supposed to be. Though, the disguises worked so well that the pair went out to a local nightclub where they were not recognized by fans. They enjoyed their evening as “normal” people, for a change.
- Zdeno Chara, Jordan Caron, Brad Marchand, Adam McQuaid
Hockey players truly are the greatest athletes in the world. The group is shown posing with a boy at the Children’s Hospital in Boston. Let’s take a moment to single-out Zdeno Chara in his 6’9 pink bunny costume (7’4 if you include the ears). Sorry Chara, your costume just isn’t as discrete as Crosby’s and Malkin’s
- PK Subban shows off his best “Thriller”
As one of the most entertaining players in the NHL, Subban is sure to be a thriller on the ice, and apparently off the ice too. PK Subban, doing his best 1982 Michael Jackson impression.
- Llyod and Harry. I mean, Jonathan Toews and Adam Burish
Did you have to do a double take? The resemblance is so spot-on that you almost feel sorry for the pair. After all, it’s “Dumb and Dumber” we’re talking about here.
- Joe Thornton and Brent Burns dress up as hobos
Just kidding. This is what they actually look like.
