The holiday season is in full swing and there are 17 shopping days until Christmas. Hockey teams are already getting in the mood all over the world with various promotions, such as teddy bear tosses and special jerseys.
Choreographed music videos are a favorite around here, as we all remember the Belfast Giants' take on Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas" from 2010. Today, the ECHL's Toledo Walleye are giving it a shot with their version of The Drifters' "White Christmas", highlighted by Nestrasil acting out the Macaulay Culkin/aftershave scene.

It truly was a group effort. Even head coach Nick Vitucci got involved (as he gazes into your eyes above). According to the Walleye, the Toledo Ballet helped out with the choreography, and what an afternoon that must have been!
The video acts as the perfect commercial for the Walleye. First, you get sucked in by the song and Clyde McPhatter's dulcet tones; then you stick around to see which of your favorite players has the worst dance moves until finally you finally realize: yup, all of them.
