NHL Lockout Halloween Costumes

You might be scrambling for a costume to wear to your Halloween party and with no NHL hockey so far this season being the scariest thing for fans we have some costume ideas to help you get through it. As the NHL and NHLPA continue to negotiate (or lack there of) a new CBA, why not poke fun at the Lockout and those involved?

Here are some NHL Lockout Halloween costumes ideas:

Laid Off Team Mascot

Find a big animal suit and throw a hockey jersey over it. Make your own cardboard sign and shake a coffee cup with pennies at partygoers.

Hockey Related Revenue (a.k.a. hockey fan)

Dress up wearing your favourite NHL team's jersey and hat, stuff your pockets with old hockey tickets and parking stubs, and eat a Burkie's hot dog or some sort of stadium food. If you're up for it, stick a game day magazine in your armpit and wave an obnoxiously big team flag around. Your goal for the night is to see if anyone can define what you are.

NHLer In Europe

Take your favourite player's NHL jersey and cover it in as many advertisements as you possibly can. Bonus points if you paint your helmet gold with flames on it for the night to be the Top Scorer.

Gary Bettman

Suit up and be prepared to make a lot of weird faces throughout the night whenever a picture is taken because you will also double as the World's Most Unphotogenic Man. To really complete the Bettman costume you have to wear your shoes on your knees and walk around the party all night tugging on peoples shirts asking them if they can pass some potato chips down from the table for you.

NHL Owner

Suit up and stuff your pockets full of (Monopoly) money to the point that they are overflowing and you're swimming in your money like Scrooge McDuck. Go around asking partygoers for more money with a cackling laugh.

Henrik Zetterberg At An NHLPA Meeting:

Many were surprised when the NHLPA held a press conference dressed in street clothes and we got to see what players like Henrik Zetterberg wear away from the rink. Luckily for us, Zetterberg wore an assortment of clothing worthy of a halloween costume including a Detroit Tigers hat, a t-shirt with "PEACE" written across the front with an unbutton blue cardigan positioned so that "PEACE" is still showing, dark pants (maybe sweats?) and white high-tops.

Ryan Getzlaf At An NHLPA Meeting

Bic your head from the front of your hairline to the middle so you've achieved male pattern baldness. Don't bother completely shaving your head or wearing a hat to cover up this loss in public, and if anyone makes fun of your lid simply tell them: "Three minutes, and all ye are fallen." At your Halloween party you can also shine a flashlight at people and then apologize for the glare off your forehead.

Hockey Fan Protester

Make a picket sign with a non-clever slogan and wear your hockey jersey inside out. Go around telling people you want hockey back and have them remind you that there other hockey leagues besides the NHL.


Put a paper bag over your head with a big question mark written on it and walk around asking people to sign your petition. Constantly spread unfound rumours around at the party and avoid people trying to kick you in the balls.

Allan Walsh's Twitter Feed

Suit up for your Halloween party and wear a whiteboard around your neck that you constantly update with client stats (or non-client stats that make your clients look good) and NHL Lockout facts about how the owners are screwing over players.


  1. I love the Zetterberg Brooklyn hipster look.

  2. haha, you know we have some advertisement on our jersey's in europe but we never had a lockout season and no discussions about the contracts ;)

    1. and we have none of these annoying ''power''-breaks. and thanks to the top scorer helmet the sponsor pays for the amount of points they reached and invests it into youth developement. now thats a system to look up to.

    future and it iѕ time tο bе happу.
