10 Hottest NHL Players

Happy Valentine’s Day to all, in honour of this often depressing day I have decided to make it a little happier for all the single ladies out there. Here are 10 of (in my opinion) the hottest players in the NHL, in no particular order (and for the record just because you think a player(s) is hot does not make you a puck bunny).

  1. Luke Schenn and Brayden Schenn: Yes, these two had to make the list. Luke is my favourite hockey player and his little brother isn’t too hard on the eyes either. Their hockey ability isn’t too bad either, Luke being number one in the league in hits and Brayden being on a role with 5 points in his last 5 games.

  2. John Tavares: This boy is definitely easy on the eyes and having a great season with the New York Islanders. He was drafted first overall in 2009 and is a very talented kid.

  3. Erik Karlsson: As a Toronto Maple Leafs fan it kills me to have an Ottawa Senator on the list but an exception has to be made for Erik Karlsson. He won the Norris Trophy last season but unfortunately was injured last night in the Senators’ game against the Pittsburgh Penguins which will be a devastating blow to the Senators. However I do believe there will be a lineup of ladies to volunteer to nurse him back to health.

  4. Joffrey Lupul: This guy is attractive. Unfortunately a broken arm in the 3rdgame of the season has had him out ever since he is a great hockey player and a great guy. He does Lupe’s Troops at every home Toronto Maple Leafs game, which honours a different member of the military at every game.

  5. Mike Fisher: Probably best known to the female community as being Carrie Underwood’s husband (sorry Mike you know it’s true), Mike Fisheris definitely a catch (way to go Carrie). This marriage caused an uproar in Ottawa due to the fact that after it happened Mike was traded from the Senators to the Nashville Predators. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that Mike was traded to Nashville right after marrying a country singer, right?

  6. Brian Boyle: Brian is a center for the New York Rangers. He made a name for himself in the HBO 24/7 Winter Classic special when he brought the cameras home to his family where he is one of 15 kids.

  7. Patrick Sharp: Patrick Sharpand the Chicago Blackhawks have had an impressive start to the season. Patrick currently has 12 points in the 13 games he’s played so far this season.

  8. Jonathan Quick: As Conn Smythe winner in last year’s playoffs, there is no doubting that Jonathan Quickis an amazing goalie. Though he has gotten off to a slow start this season there is no taking away the amazing job he did for the Los Angeles Kings last season.

  9. Steven Stamkos: With a 60 goals last season there is no doubting the talent that Steven Stamkos has. He won the Maurice RichardTrophy last year and looked damn good doing it. I also have one little tidbit of information to add for the ladies and that is that the Tampa Bay Lightning play beach volleyball during training camp (yes I really want to go too).

  10. Gabriel Landeskog: This Swedish born Left wing for the Colorado Avalanche is just plain attractive. He is also very talented as he walked away with the Calder Trophy last season.
