from Emily Kaplan of ESPN,

"Can it be hard for me to find pants? Yes, always," McDavid says. "The waist, you need to get around your thighs and butt, but that doesn't always match how tall you are. I definitely have a hard time finding jeans that fit."

He's hardly alone. "I have had trouble," Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn says. "I just need to find the right company. Jeans are the hardest."

Penguins forward Zach Aston-Reese forgot to bring jeans on a road trip earlier this season. So while the team was in Ottawa, Aston-Reese ventured to the Levi's store. That's when he received a call from teammate Derek Grant. "Are you still shopping?" Grant asked. "Can you buy me a pair?"

"Sure," Aston-Reese said. "What size?"

"34" Grant said.

"No way!" Aston-Reese replied.

Aston-Reese is technically a 34 waist himself, but always buys a size 36 "because my butt won't fit in a 34," he says.
