Morning Flurries: Lots to Celebrate this Halloween

Birthdays and Halloween means lots of sugar for everyone!

Cale Makar is an Adult

Just days after scoring his first regular season NHL goal, Cale Makar turned 21. King Soopers made him a special cake, and we are still waiting for footage of him blowing out the candles. As we learned in this amazing apartment tour, Makar isn’t much of a chef, but keeps some healthy snacks in his mostly empty refrigerator. The boys will probably demolish the cake so he won’t have any to take time. After also celebrating Mikko Rantanen’s birthday on Tuesday, tonight’s Halloween candy is really going to give everyone’s dentist a nightmare.

Bowen Byram gets an A

As the WHL prepares for the CIBC Canada Russia series next month, they announced their leaders. Ty Smith will be the captain of the WHL squad and Bowen Byram, Dylan Cozens, and Nolan Foote are each going to wear an A. Representing different WHL teams, all four players also participated in the series last year. The Vancouver Giants are 7-8, but in 14 games Byram has two goals and 10 goals from 34 shots on goal.

We Have a Podcast!

Adrian and Tom recorded the first episode of our At Elevation podcast on Monday, give it a listen.

Happy Halloween

The Colorado Avalanche and their affiliates are getting into the spooky spirit. In addition to Sam Girard’s Freddie Mercury impression, Tyson Jost, Rantanen, and Nathan Mackinnon grabbed their singlets and wrestled it out a few days ago. They won our award for best group costume. No word yet on Makar’s costume, but there has to be a Kale suit out there somewhere for him. The Avs are off tonight so there is plenty of time for everyone to trick-or-treat.

The Vancouver Giants hosted their annual Halloween scavenger hunt yesterday. The team split into four groups and unfortunately, Byram’s superhero squad didn’t get to the final checkpoint in time to win.

A Multi-Sport Star

Someone has been eating Wheaties and not candy. Czech soccer star Petr Cech has traded in his cleats for some goalie gear. In his retirement career, Cech has signed on as goalie for the NIHL Guildford Phoenix. He apparently has some past experience on the ice, and has promise between the pipes. Cech still has a lot to learn, but he looks to have the makings of a successful goalie. Our very own Cat shares her thoughts on his new career here.
