Hawks' locker room abuzz talking Halloween
CHICAGO -- Halloween was one of most popular topics of conversation on Monday in the Chicago Blackhawks' locker room and star forward Patrick Sharp revealed his most popular, albeit embarrassing, costumes.

"My wife wanted to go as a bumble bee, so I was forced to go as a flower," said Sharp, who has also dressed as Hawks coach Joel Quenneville before. "It wasn't my favorite, but it got a good laugh."

In case you're wondering, it was a pretty detailed get-up.

"I had the green tights and the yellow sunflower hat on," Sharp said. "It was pretty embarrassing. I think there's a picture floating around out there somewhere, but I'll do my best to get it off the internet."

As for his favorite candy to get while trick-or-treating as a kid?

"I'm a big chocolate guy," Sharp said. "Anything chocolate is great. Any of the healthy stuff that the neighborhood people would give us, we'd just throw it right back toward their window or on their front step."

Nashville Predators coach Barry Trotz was also asked about Halloween and whether he thinks any kids from Tennessee might dress up as him on Monday night.

"I don't think so," Trotz said. "But if they dress up a little mafia-looking, like Edward G. Robinson or something like that … for the younger people they won't know who that is, but if you go back to the old gangster movies, I think that would probably be me."


Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
