The Penguins annual Halloween party is always a treasure trove of pictures and quotes. For instance, Kris Letang, Marc-André Fleury, and Chris Kunitz all love Halloween and will prepare weeks in advance.[1]

The Penguins 2016 Halloween party took place on Sunday 23 October 2016 at Mario's South Side Saloon in Pittsburgh, where Sidney Crosby may or may not have hustled people in beer pong. Some players are more inventive than others when it comes to their costumes. It took five hours to do the makeup for Kris Letang's costume. Conor Sheary, Scott Wilson, and Bryan Rust went for a group costume with characters from Mario Kart, including scooters and balloons to their costumes.[3] The players also wore their costumes to practice the next day, bringing a change of clothes. The exception is Daniel Sprong, who had to leave the rink in his gorilla costume.
