Did you hear that Alex Ovechkin is engaged? Well, he is—to the gorgeous tennis player and fellow Russian Maria Kirilenko. And this got me thinking the other day. First I wondered, wow, is the biggest looks mismatch in sports history? I don’t think Ovie is really what most women would consider “handsome.” Then I wondered, where would Maria Kirilenko rank on a list of the all-time hottest NHL celebrity WAGs?
As you’ve probably guessed, the first question went nowhere. But the second? That’s the topic of today’s list. And it’s a pretty good one, because despite hockey’s relatively minor status in the United States, hockey players still do really well with the ladies.
So, ready to go? Great. Let’s do this.
