My Top 5 | Devin Shore

We served up five teammates’ names to Devin Shore and asked the Dallas Stars forward to come up with the perfect Halloween costume for each one.

We served up five teammates’ names to Devin Shore and asked the Dallas forward to come up with the perfect Halloween costume for each one.

The 24-year-old did a scary good job of selecting an appropriate look for his fellow Stars, including a country music legend-themed costume for team captain Jamie Benn.

And because Shore stopped by NHLPA.com for this week’s edition of the Top 5, we should note that his all-time favourite Halloween candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Shore's top teammate costumes


1. Man in Black

“I would like to see Jamie (Benn) – he is notorious for wearing black, both in his street clothes and on game days in his suit – as Johnny Cash. I’d like to him see him dressed up as that this year. That would be a good look.”

2. Sign of the times

“You can go a lot of ways with Tyler – he has a lot going for him. Maybe with the new contract I’d say a bag of money. He’s earned it for sure.  He’s a great guy and a great teammate. I’d say that one, but just as a joke.”

3. The Count

“John (Klingberg), he’s got the good hair -- he’s always slicking it back. I’d go with a ghost or actually, maybe Dracula would be a good idea for him. He’d have the hair for Dracula.”   

4. Bench boss Spezza  

“Jason knows the game so well – I don’t know what he’d want to do after he finishes playing – but I think he’d make a heck of a coach. Something classic, like a nice suit, a clipboard and a whistle. He’s 35 and he’s still a student of the game.”  

5. Hooping it up

“We’d have to find something that has to do with height for Ben (Bishop is 6-foot-7). Maybe we could get him to go out as Yao Ming, the former NBA star. That would be a good one for him. It’s about the height we’d need.”
