Maybe the time off will help with their penalty-kill, eh? Maybe? Maybe want to work on that guys? Sorry, trailing off from the point. Read more on the penalty struggles here.
But it is the Blackhawks’ annual Halloween party that helps the players and their families relax a little early on in the long, marathon-style NHL season and this year’s costume entries did not disappoint.
Chicago’s Captain Jonathan Toews and his girlfriend Lindsey Vecchione chose the classical skeleton idea for their 2016 costume, but went all the way skeleton with their skeleton skin-suits and Hollywood quality makeup.
The caption says it all for the Captain.
It’s very interesting that Rasmussen, being from Sweden, decided to not be his fellow countryman Borg in the duo, but it’s hard to deny that Kempny’s bread-game is strong and looks more of the part.

Anisimov went the Toews route, sporting a detailed skeleton makeup job but not going for the skeleton body-suit.
Panarin decided to pay homage to Chicago’s mob history and be a gangster (possibly the legendary Al Capone) for his 2016 Halloween costume.
The machine-gun is a nice touch for Panarin’s costume, but the glow-in-the-dark colors makes him more adorable than intimidating.
Finally, Scott Darling didn’t stray too far from the ice for his costume idea. His Chaz Michael Michaels costume from Blades Of Glory is a great fit and seriously looks homemade. If it is, then bonus point to Darling and his fiance!
The Blackhawks and their families look like they enjoyed their annual Halloween party and with the commitment and dedication some give to their costumes, it’s easy to see why it’s always a good time.
