Dion Phaneuf, Phil Kessel get in holiday spirit

Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf shared an Instagram photo of himself and teammate Phil Kessel getting into the holiday spirit in their own way. 

Given the time of year, it's pretty safe to assume that they were at some sort of ugly Christmas sweater party. Kessel took it up a notch by wearing an Elf shirt. 

With the photo captioned "Happy holidays," it's really the thought that counts.
