When it comes to the Winnipeg Jets, Patrik Laine is one of a kind.
A unique sniper with rare scoring ability, the 19-year-old has already established himself as one of the Jets’ most dangerous weapons. After posting 36 goals in just 73 games last season, Laine has scored four through seven so far in the 2017-18 campaign.

Saturday night marked an off-day for Winnipeg, and with the team not scheduled to play until Thursday, the Finn took advantage of his time away from the rink to bring in Halloween a bit early. Last night on his Instagram account, Laine shared a photo of himself in which he appears to be dressed as some sort of angel.
Patrik has grown his hair out in the past, but not to this extent. Have you ever seen someone rock silver hair with wings so well before?
Perhaps Laine intended to go as the Tooth Fairy, which would be good news for some of his teammates. Dustin Byfuglien particularly could use a visit from the mythical character, as he probably has a few of his old chicklets lying around. Think of all the money he could find under his pillow?

From his natural beard to his tutu, everything about this outfit is perfect. So if you’re having difficulty brainstorming an idea for next week, Laine’s strange costume could be a nice option.
