Spooky season is here! While hockey teams always celebrate with a party off the ice, they should also be allowed to celebrate on it. Halloween warm-ups could be a lot of fun if the players were allowed to dress up. So what kinds of costumes would they put together?
Is there any question that these two would dress up together? They wouldn’t put too much thought into it because they’re always focused on hockey instead. So they probably go to Target and grab two pairs of dog ears plus some face paint to paint on a nose and some whiskers. It’s simple but adorable.
While Zuccarello and Kaprizov didn’t actually include him in their costume idea, he catches wind of it and uses it as inspiration for his costume. Hartman buys a baseball cap and writes DOG CATCHER on it.
Eriksson Ek puts by far the most thought and effort into his costume. He makes himself into a giant bunch of grapes by placing a bunch of purple balloons in a clear bag and making holes for his legs and arms. All of the balloons are popped only five minutes into the warmup, and Ek sadly leaves the ice to take his costume off.
Playing into the stereotypes about him, Duhaime dresses up like a clown with a rainbow wig and clown makeup. Unfortunately, Duhaime picks very authentic clown makeup and can’t completely wash it off after warmups. He plays the game with the makeup on, and no one can take him seriously, especially when he suggests a fight.
Declining Duhaime’s offer to dress like a clown with him, Dewar decides to play a ring leader from the circus. That way, Duhaime won’t be too sad about not having matching costumes. All he does is throw on a bow tie and a top hat, but it makes Duhaime happy.
He’s just Ken. His job is puck.
How these four decided to do a group costume together is unknown, but Spurgeon rounded them up, and Middleton decided on the costume. They all painted their faces and put on wigs to become the rock band Kiss. Addison immediately picks Catman, much to everyone’s surprise. Spurgeon becomes the Demon because he’s the leader. Middleton is Space Ace, and Goligoski is Starchild.
These two decide together that they have to wear a costume to join the fun, but they don’t want to do much. So Faber wears his glasses and becomes Clark Kent, while Brodin wears a red cape and becomes Superman.
It didn’t take long for Evason to get tired of the comparison between him and Creed from The Office. So, he dresses as Dwight Schrute instead.
He was going to dress as a punching bag, but then he rethought that idea when he realized that Evason might take it as an invitation to hit him more. So, he dresses as a stop sign instead.
Gorg takes his nickname of K-Train seriously and dresses in overalls and an engineer hat.
Nordy’s costume might be the best costume of the night because he dresses up as Herb Brooks in a 70’s style plaid suit coat.
