It hasn’t been too scary a start for the Vancouver Canucks, contrary to many predictions. While there have been times when fans have been a bit spooked (star rookie Elias Pettersson landing a concussion, for one), the team has largely been competitive in the first month of the season.With that news, why shouldn’t the Canucks get into the spirit of the season with some on-point Halloween costumes? Yes, many members of the team have already made their costume choices, but we have a few suggestions of our own.
Yes, Pettersson has already been dubbed “The Alien” by some in the media (along with a few other nicknames). It’s true that his skill is otherworldly and he often pulls things off that we just don’t see in the NHL.With that in mind, Pettersson’s actual Halloween costume this year—a Minion, along with with linemate Nikolay Goldobin—was close enough.https://twitter.com/CYochmans/status/1057405524239511554
Green has managed to pull an injury-riddled Canucks team into third place in the division. Plus, he made Sam Gagner disappear. Spells were also cast on Michael Del Zotto, though Green might want to give his wand another wave on that one.
Has anyone seen him since 2016?
With all the blocked shots he’s racking up, it seems like Edler’s position of choice these days anyway.

Salo, the former Canucks rearguard, was known for being placed on injured reserve and, sadly, Tanev seems to be following in his footsteps. One of the best on the team roster, Tanev has missed 69 games combined over the past two seasons and finds himself on the shelf once again this year with a hip ailment.
This would be the ultimate troll job and something we absolutely need to see happen now that Linden has “amicably” (note: it wasn’t amicable at all) left the organization. Benning is his de facto replacement, and some choice eyeglasses and a dusting of grey in his hair would go a long way towards completing the look.
Guddy takes this crown after knocking out a few of Travis Hamonic’s fangs. http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5s4qYrkBT4We’ll leave it up to the hulking defenceman to choose between the Dwayne Johnson vibe or a more refined, traditional look.
Sure to be a popular costume this year, the Philadelphia Flyers’ mascot Gritty and his googly eyes have taken the NHL by storm. FIN could stand to learn something from … whatever Gritty is supposed to be.
#ShotgunJake (wherein fans shotgun a beer whenever Virtanen scores) is a thing, and the kid from Abbotsford might as well embrace it.
He is the Canucks’ new (and maybe only) hope on defence, after all.
