Kris Versteeg: Hi Santa. I know I have some bad karma because I went with the Calgary Flames instead of the Edmonton Oilers. And that’s why I keep getting injured. But please, no more injuries. Thank you. Maybe also for the Oilers not to make playoffs, that’d be awkward.

Mikael Backlund: Hey Santa, I would like some more Swedish meatballs. That is all, thank you.

Johnny Gaudreau: All the guys keep saying you’re not real Santa, but I know you’re real. I don’t know why they keep saying that. What I wanted to ask you is for other teams to stop trying to hurt me. I have a fragile body, I mean, I am only 160 lbs (if anybody asks tell them I’m 180lbs). I would also like if the refs could call some more penalties that keep happening to me. It’s not fair, I’m only a kid. Thanks Santa! I hope Rudolph is doing alright.

Lance Bouma: Santa maybe for the 2017-2018 season, I could not get injured. I keep getting injured and having to miss some games. Also I was a healthy scratch twice in three games, maybe you can help me get some more points and some more fights and I can stay in the lineup? Also please let me know if I’m going to Vegas during expansion. I’m getting anxious.

Matt Stajan: Did Gio ask you for some hair? He definitely stole my wish.
