Canucks help children carve pumpkins @NHLdotcom
A ghost, a monster, a bat…

Kaden Thomas had a lot of choices when it came to what he wanted to carve into his pumpkin. What he didn't get to decide was which Vancouver Canucks player would lend him a hand.

Unfortunately for him, it was Alex Bolduc. [VIEW PHOTO GALLERY]

There was no screening process for the five Canucks who visited Canuck Place Children's Hospice earlier this week to spread the Halloween spirit by carving pumpkins with the kids, but one would assume they had each carved a pumpkin before.

By the looks of Kaden's pumpkin when all was said and done, that wasn't the case for Bolduc.

"It was supposed to be a bat overtop of a building," said Kaden of his pumpkin, "but it didn't really turn out so well and we kind of had to change it up a little.

"It didn't turn out because Alex has never carved a pumpkin before. It was his first time and that's sad."
