It's the most wonderful time of the year as they like to say, a time when Happy Holliday wishes are sent at every checkout line and street corner. Hockey teams are never shy to join in the well-wishing fun to their fans.

The Phoenix Coyotes are one of the first teams to join the chorus this year (they got their wishes in before Hanukkah finishes). But instead of doing the singing like the Blackhawks did in the past, the Coyotes decided to let their sticks do the singing. Sticks, pucks and jingle bells.

Shane Doan, Mike Ribeiro, Radim Vrbata and Keith Yandle donned red and green sweaters and took aim at jingle bells hanging from the net to perform a little Jingle Bells treat with their supreme accuracy.

It was missing that final note until Mike Smith hit the back of the net from, where else, his own crease at the other end of the ice. They obviously knew they had the right goalie to play that part.

This isn't a new idea, in fact it looks like it was taken directly from the NBA's awesome commercial promoting that league's Christmas games but it's still pretty awesome. Happy Howlidays from the Coyotes is right.
