WE ASKED THE DUCKS...
What’s the best prank you’ve ever witnessed during your playing days?

Travis Moen
Last year after practice, about seven of us were getting dressed and noticed someone had sewn our pockets shut with the keys in them. And he sewed them good, so it took us forever to cut the thread out and get our keys out to go home. To this day we don’t know the culprit, but I would put my money on George Parros.

Teemu Selanne
I was in Winnipeg and I was doing a TV interview with Lisa Bowes of TSN. It was after a game, so I was in my underwear, and Tie Domi came behind me and pulled my underwear down. It was so embarrassing. And she looked down too.

Brad May
I can’t tell you one of them because I’m planning on unveiling it out here down the stretch. But the best one was we had gone to the barber shop and collected a big garbage bag full of about two months worth of hair. Then we put Vaseline on a guy’s car and stuck the hair all over it. That was in Phoenix a few years ago.
One time we put Limburger cheese on a guy’s manifold. That stunk up the whole neighborhood.
My favorite that I’ve done, because it caused so much havoc, was taking all the keys off all the guys’ key rings and putting them in a show box and shook it up. There were about 100 keys in there and the guys came off the ice in a hurry to get home, and nobody could tell which keys were which. By the end of it, there were about 30 of them left in there that nobody could tell whose they were.

George Parros
I enjoy changing people’s numbers on their cell phones, so they think they’re calling one person and they call someone completely different. That gets them pretty confused. I’ve done that a few times here.

Chris Kunitz
Guys will cut the laces on your skates with scissors, so when you go to tie them up they come apart. That hurts because you’re already half-dressed and you’re trying to get out to practice and you have to re-lace your skates. Sometimes you’ll cut one corner of a guy’s stick so when they go to take a shot it breaks and they fall down.

Kent Huskins
We had a little prank war going back and forth when I was in college at Clarkson [University]. I think it started with this huge snowstorm, and about four or five of us went over to a house where a bunch of our teammates lived and we pushed up a huge man-made bank of snow onto their front door. We soaked it pretty good to make it super hard, so they couldn’t get in or out. It took them a while to clear that out of there.
In retaliation, a bunch of us went out to go to practice one morning and the car was covered in snow, so you couldn’t tell there was anything wrong with it. When we cleared the snow off we discovered they had taken all four tires off it and put the car up on blocks.
There was another one where we filled one of our buddy’s apartments with crickets. That was pretty harsh in hindsight.

Todd Marchant

When we used to fly commercial, if a guy fell asleep you might take his shoes, cut his tie or put shaving cream in his hands. We’d scratch his face and when he woke he’d put shaving cream in his face.

Mathieu Schneider
The best one I ever heard involved Chris Nilan and John Vanbiesbrouck. Vanbiesbrouk shoe-checked him, which is where you crawl under the table at a team dinner and dump some kind of sauce on a player’s shoe. Then everyone on the team clinks their glasses and yells “shoe check” and they check their shoes to see if there is a big mess on them.
So Nilan had the car seat pulled out of Vanbiesbrouk’s car during practice and he put a dead fish in it. Vanbiesbrouck ended up having to sell the car because it smelled so bad.
