Nov 1 2018, 12:26 am

There will be no trick or treating for Vancouver Canucks players this year, as they’re featured in the only game on the NHL schedule tonight, against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Instead, the Canucks held their annual Halloween party this week, and as usual, the creative costumes did not disappoint.

NHL teams typically go all out for Halloween, as evidenced by this year’s crop of photos of players from around the league that have already popped up on social media.

As far as the Canucks go, you might be surprised which players went all-out with their costumes this year.

A pair of baby-faced Canucks combined for perhaps the funniest costume. Elias Pettersson and Nikolay Goldobin have shown chemistry on the ice and made the perfect Minions off-ice.

Scroll up the top photo to see Michigan-born Tyler Motte as Captain America, and goaltender Richard Bachman, who looks like he just got out of the shower.

Somehow this costume doesn’t surprise me coming from happy-go-lucky Ben Hutton. But the stoic Brock Boeser? Perfect.
