Auston Matthews as Ken Bone
Toronto Maple Leafs wunderkind Auston Matthews leaned on his American roots for Halloween, dressing up as Ken Bone, who’s best known as the man who asked a question during the second 2016 United States Presidential Election Debate. Teammate Peter Holland went as Donald Trump and a friend joined the party as Hillary Clinton.
