Best Halloween Costume Award Goes To….. (And Dion Phaneuf's Career In Video)

That’s right folks, with just one hour to go until midnight, we here at LWOS have scoured the internet for the best hockey related Hallowe’en costume of the year, and we are giving it to “Incredibly Accurate Dion Phaneuf Costume Kid.”

This classic Phaneuf costume captures the Toronto Maple Leafs captain in all his glory.

In honour of “Incredibly Accurate Dion Phaneuf Costume Kid” we bring you our top Dion Phaneuf moments from his NHL career.

First we go back to his early days with the Calgary Flames, and this memorable interaction with then Canuck Jarko Ruutu.  Dion was looking for a fight, but that isn’t what he found.

Dion Phaneuf is a tough guy though, and has always been a really big hitter.  Lets look back at him lowering the boom on one of the NHL’s top point getters.  This thunderous check sent shockwaves throughout the NHL.  Take it away Dion.

Oh and here’s another big Dion Phaneuf hit.

And one more


Dion Phaneuf is a leader.  He wears the Captain’s “C” for the Toronto Maple Leafs, and really there couldn’t be a more deserving player. Whether it be turning up the stereo to 10, or making sure his teammates make line changes, Dion is always there.  Just listen to Ray Ferraro giving big praise for Dion’s leadership ability.


Dion Phaneuf comes up big, in big games.  Here his pinch leads to a great offensive opportunity and a goal.
