PHILADELPHIA FLYERS VS JEFF CARTER POINTS UPDATE:
Last night in Phoenix, the Los Angeles Kings struggOH WHAT DO YOU CARE, LET'S SEE SOME PHOTOSHOPS OF THE LA KINGS PLAYERS AT THEIR HALLOWEEN PARTY!!!
Now that The Royal Half is the real-deal... I'm invited to ALL of the LA Kings players' parties. So after last night's 3-1 loss to the Coyotes
, once the boys landed at LAX... I headed down to the South Bay to an early Halloween party at Jarret Stoll's house. Since it was short notice, I didn't have time to dress up.
I hope no one notices.
Jarret was pretty adamant about no photos being taken... but I was able to snap a few using my cellphone. Here's Jon Quick dressed as the one thing he really, really, really wants to be in life more than anything...
A New York Giant.
And Drew Doughty and Jake Muzzin dressed as characters from their favorite movie...
I was kinda disappointed with Trevor Lewis. He was a little "too cool for school" and didn't even dress up.
Anze Kopitar and Kyle Clifford came dressed as zombies.
The best part about Willie Mitchell's Halloween costume is that he already had the outfit in his closet.
Slava Voynov came dressed as the dude from those Direct TV commericials.
Dwight King had a last minute costume change that more accurately reflected his last few games.
I should have expected it, but Ben Scrivens came dressed as his favorite scientist of all time.
But the prize for the costume of the night went to the 4 guys who are probably the most tight-knit group on the team.
Since they've been in town for a few days, even the San Jose Sharks paid a surprise visit to the LA Kings Halloween Party. And they showed up in the most make-believe costume I've ever seen!
They won the Fantasy Award.
And since the Sharks crashed the party... Drew Doughty made one more costume change so he could have fun with his best friend on Halloween.
