They might not be going door-to-door to net some sweet candy anymore, but several players spoke to us about some of their favourite Halloween costumes and fondest trick-or-treat memories.

They might not be going door-to-door to net some sweet candy anymore, but several players spoke to us about some of their favourite Halloween costumes and fondest trick-or-treat memories.

While they still look forward to getting into the spooky spirit of the evening, the players enjoyed the opportunity to look back on their younger days of celebrating October 31st and some of the fashion statements they made with their costumes.

Here are some of the players' favourite Halloween costumes and memories:

BRANDON PRUST

“My favourite costume as a kid was the Phantom of the Opera. I loved the phantom and that whole story when I was growing up.”

DAVID BOLLAND

“I’m pretty sure every year when I was younger, I was always dressed up as a hockey player. I think one year I was Dracula just to switch it up.”

TEDDY PURCELL

“My favoruite costume when I was growing up was Kevin McCallister (the character from the movie ‘Home Alome’). I liked that one a lot.”

JOSH BAILEY

“I can’t really remember anything in particular, but it’s pretty safe to assume I was a hockey player on a few occasions. I’m sure there are plenty of pictures that my mom has.”

DAVID BACKES

“It would be Superman because I could run around in my underwear.”

Many players haven't lost their Halloween spirit in adulthood either. Here are some of the best costumes we've seen so far this week:
