BOSTON (CBS) — If there’s one thing that’s guaranteed to bring a smile to people’s faces, it’s got to be professional athletes acting like children and dressing up for Halloween.

That’s a double guarantee if one of those athletes is a 6-foot-5 defenseman wearing a dress.

Dougie Hamilton can lay claim to that feat today, after the Bruins visited Boston Children’s Hospital while dressed up as characters from the Disney movie “Frozen” — an appropriate choice, considering the venue of their sport.

Hamilton dressed as Elsa, while teammate Matt Fraser dressed as Anna.

A happy-as-can-be Torey Krug dressed as Olaf the snowman, Seth Griffith dressed as Hans, Kevan Miller dressed as Kristoff, and Matt Bartkowski dressed as Sven.

The Bruins tweeted a photo of the crew at the hospital, and while you may be inclined to laugh, you’d be wise to not let them see you. These Disney princes and princesses may be the toughest Trick or Treaters around.

Of course, on this day, they weren’t flexing their muscles, but were instead volunteering their time to bring smiles to kids’ faces.

Hamilton deserves bonus points too, because even though he’s just 21 years old, he may already hold the title of Best Halloween Costume Wearer in Boston Bruins history.
