The NHL’s most popular mascot, Gritty, continues to take over the world with this scintillating Wonder Woman costume. Eat your heart out, Gal Gadot.

Canucks players Shrek it up

Vancouver Canucks sensation Elias Pettersson made an ass of himself this Halloween, dressing as Donkey from the Shrek movies.

And who rounded out the gang? Brock Boeser as Prince Charming (of course), while Chris Tanev got all ogreish as Shrek himself. Quinn Hughes and Thatcher Demkoย  had quite a tail to tell as the pigs, and Jake Virtanen must have been baking inside that Gingerbread Man costume.

Captain greasy

Newly-minted team captain Bo Horvat is definitely the one we want under the dock.

Blinders on

Oscar Fantenberg, Jacob Markstrom, Loui Eriksson, and Alex Edler dressed up as the cast of the British drama series, Peaky Blinders. They must be binge watching Netflix in lieu of playing Fortnite in Vancouver these days.

‘Cause Tim Schaller said so

To cap off the Canucks’ efforts, Tim Schaller pounded some cold ones and stunned as Steve Austin.

This team is very hot right now and creating a lot of Buzz.

The Boston Bruins visited a children’s hospital as the cast of Toy Story 4. Charlie McAvoy was the alien, David Pastrnak was Rex, and Matt Grelczyk dressed as fan favourite Forkie.

Stars on ice

The Dallas Stars did something similar but it was more of a mixed bag, much like their start to the season.

This is the costume that made me laugh out loud this year. The Nashville Predators are hoping Kyle Turris gets soooooooooo hot on the ice as well.

Bend the knee

Nashville Predators winger Filip Forsberg is on the shelf with a lower-body injury, but he’s still able to bend the knee as Jon Snow.

Preds defenceman Roman Josi is spending his new contract extension money on makeup, it seems. The veteran defenceman looks like an extra from Pirates of the Caribbean.
