Models dating hockey players

Whether these lovely ladies were famous first and hockey wives second or the other way around, each has become a double threat as a stunning, sexy woman and fortunate enough to marry a professional hockey player.

One of the perks of being a pro athlete, however, is that you can afford to be pretty selective in choosing a mate.

And while a lot of pros marry their high school sweethearts who stuck with them during the leaner years, there’s also a pretty good number of them who take full advantage of the privilege their station affords by dating and/or marrying supermodels.

Of course, while we all respect the former, we’re definitely more envious of the latter. Given that supermodel Linda Evangelista is Canadian, you’d think she’s have dated a hockey player like other Canadian hotties (such as Elisha Cuthbert).

The hottest hockey wives and girlfriends are currently or formerly married to, currently or formerly dating, or currently or formerly having an affair with the fine men of the National Hockey League.

The hottest men of hockey are not only famous professional athletes but also fortunate enough to have relationships with beautiful women in the public eye, from actresses to musicians to models to athletes.

Currently, some of the most famous hockey wives include blonde beauties who recently wed their hockey studs but were already household names to begin with.Carrie Underwood, for example, became a country music sensation well before she married Mike Fisher of the Nashville Predators.Same with actress Hilary Duff, who starred in several movies and TV shows before marrying Mike Comrie of the Pittsburgh Penguins.Singer, actress, television personality, and Willa Ford has seen a great deal of success outside of being simply a trophy wife to NHL great Mike Modano.Other sexy hockey wives are quite famous as well, but not in the United States, rather in their home countries.Emma Andersson, wife to Henrik Zetterberg of the Detroit Red Wings, falls into that category as a popular singer and TV star in her native Sweden.
