Boston Bruins dress up as characters from 'Frozen' for children's hospital visit

Here’s a story that will melt even the iciest of hearts.

Each year for Halloween, the Boston Bruins players dress up and pay a visit to the Boston Children’s Hospital, bringing much-needed cheer to its young patients.

Appropriately enough for the NHL hockey team, this year’s event had the players suit up in costumes from Disney’s Frozen.


The players reportedly knew the words to the song “Let It Go” and took to singing it around the hospital while they “reverse trick-or-treated,” handing out candy to the delighted kids.

Dougie Hamilton, who dressed up as snow queen Elsa, said he was all too happy to put on a blond wig for a good cause. The 6’5 defenceman even twirled for the kids in his blue gown!

“I think it’s fun, whatever can make them smile,” he said on the Bruins blog. "It's all about fun for them, so no shame at all."

He added: "I've seen the movie and I'm a fan, so I'm not going to lie about that."

Canadian player Matt Fraser, meanwhile, slipped a pretty Princess Anna costume over his muscular frame.
