Goalie Jacob Markstrom got in the Halloween spirit by scaring his fellow Vancouver Canucks as a giant prehistoric creature.

Markstrom put on a 7-foot inflatable dinosaur costume and camped out to scare his unsuspecting teammates inside Rogers Arena. Bo Horvat actually fought back, wrestling with the dinosaur after Markstrom made the Canucks forward one of his victims, and he got a little playful shove from Markus Granlund.

It's a role he took seriously, doing some stretches in between jumping out at the Canucks players. The scary voice he employed went a long way in getting him into character too.
