Pittsburgh Penguins make Elf their newest holiday video

For the third consecutive December, the defending Stanley Cup champions have put their own spin on a holiday flick.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have made a tradition out of turning classic Christmas movies into spoofy shorts. Their latest adaptation: Elf.

The Penguin’s version of Elf, a 2003 holiday film starring Will Farrell, follows their takes on National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation in 2014 and Home Alone last year. Of course, all your favorites are back again.

Centers Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin act as Farrell’s character, Buddy. Crosby gets the snowball scene and the line, “Son of a nutcracker.” Wingers Patric Hornqvist, Eric Fehr and Chris Kunitz are among the others that do, too. Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury takes his turn with his primary responsibility being to gobble up candy.

GM Jim Rutherford plays Papa Elf. Center Matt Cullen is Buddy’s father, Walter. Assistant GM Bill Guerin is Santa Claus. And what’s a Penguins holiday flick without Phil Kessel? The right winger is the store manager.

Don’t be a cotton-headed ninny-muggins. Watch the Penguins’ Elf video and have a great holiday!
