Social media has allowed us fans to
stalk closely monitor our favorite players, desperate for glimpses into their personal lives — however much they’re willing to share. That’s crossed over to Halloween, as players trade their helmets and gloves for glasses, makeup and whatever else they need in order to transform into someone (or something) else.
We at Raw Charge will be collecting those Halloween party photos into one handy post! And we’ll gladly update as more photos roll in. Because why wouldn’t you want to see Matt Martin and his girlfriend Sydney with the perfect representation of the Joker and Harley Quinn... and whatever the hell Alex Ovechkin is supposed to be?
(We will only publish photos originating from public social media pages. So we won’t share your favorite player’s photo reposted by his friend’s neighbor’s girlfriend’s first-grade teacher. Tweets us @waffleboardsave or @RawCharge if you come across any other publicly shareable photos!)
But enough words and more pics. Oh, and your move, Bolts — no pressure!
The gauntlet was first thrown by the Sabres, as the team account showed off their young guns... only for us to later learn that Jack Eichel had a wardrobe malfunction.
That’s Kyle Okposo as Steve Harvey and his wife as Miss Colombia. Also pictured are the Bogosians and Moulsons...
There’s a joke about Jaromir Jagr’s age to make...
And here is the Pharaoh himself on the dance floor... (h/t Puck Daddy)
The Maple Leafs
Could’ve taken the prize for best costumes
I mean come on. This is amazing...
They didn’t plan it!
In case you need to see Alex Ovechkin more up close
And if you must, Ovechkin’s Instagram video of Zach Sanford hitting the mic first. Braden Holtby apparently picked the tune for the Caps rookie.
Another Harley Quinn and the Joker. I can’t unsee this one
The Oshies are assassins at first
Then took a more family-friendly approach the following day
We’d imagine the Joker/Harley pairing was popular this year. We give Turris points for the scariest Joker.
The full shot
That’s Alex Hammond, Chris Wideman, Clarke MacArthur and Dion Phaneuf
Erik Karlsson seems very committed
Paul Bissonnette commented that he’s coming to find you!
This team gets the award for most players dressing up in dresses
I’m jealous how good an off shoulder dress looks on Roman Josi
