Toronto Maple Leafs players show off their ridiculous food-themed costumes
The Leafs have made a bigger spectacle of the event in past seasons, but with the wounds of a crushing playoff defeat still relatively fresh, and a rocky start to the new season, this year's party was a low-key affair.
No frights this year, as this party was food-themed. Players and their significant others posed for pics for their IG stories, showing off some hilariously delicious and flat-out weird couples costumes.
Leafs netminder Jack Campbell and partner Ashley Sonney dressed up as a deconstructed Red Lobster linguine, a running gag stemming from the goalie's Happy Gilmore obsession.
Defenseman Jake Muzzin and his wife Courtney dressed as bread and a banana, which isn't quite the recipe for banana bread but we'll take it.
the theme for the leafs halloween party was food, the muzzins were banana bread and jack & ashley went as red lobster 🤍🍌🍞🦞 pic.twitter.com/1dEvCGL8DA— claire 🇸🇪 (@leafswilly) October 20, 2021
Leafs' forward Mitch Marner and partner Stephanie LaChance dressed as the "Burger King" and "Dairy Queen" while their pooch Zeuss was either the Taco Bell dog or just a taco. Either way, bonus points for involving the doggo.
so mitch and steph went as a cow and a burger for the leafs halloween party that they hosted! assuming it’s bc she’s the queen and he is the king per the stickers. and zeus is a taco! what a good looking family 😊🤍 pic.twitter.com/6mgo6PiSgx— claire 🇸🇪 (@leafswilly) October 21, 2021
Left-winger Nick Ritchie and his girlfriend Erica duked it out as the Wendy's girl and Colonel Sanders, battling for chicken sandwich dominance.
nick ritchie will never not be funny to me but him and his girlfriend, erica, went as colonel sanders/kfc and wendy’s to the leafs halloween party + a bonus blurry wag group photo 🥰 pic.twitter.com/N1NTrEA8Kl— claire 🇸🇪 (@leafswilly) October 21, 2021
In a hilarious instance of poor costume coordination, or maybe just battling egos, Alexander Kerfoot also chose Sanders as his costume. Ilya Mikheyev gets slight originality points for going as a bucket of KFC, but his wife's costume as (yet again) Colonel Sanders brings the total to three colonels at this one party.
Defenseman Justin Holl and wife Audrey dressed as an ear of corn and a stick of butter to become the famed combo of buttered corn. Hailing from Minnesota, a top producer of sweet corn, we're guessing this was a nod to his Midwestern roots.

They may not be as trendy as the Squid Game costumes everyone is racing to get, or as dedicated to the role as Raptors star Scottie Barnes channelling the Heath Ledger-era Joker, but these couples costumes are much more likely to trigger your "awww" reflex.
