When we are kids, many of us dream about what job we want to have when we grow up, and at the time, the answers usually include occupations such as doctor, police officer, firefighter, astronaut, or veterinarian. All of those are indeed jobs kids admit to dreaming about having, but many children also dream about playing sports for a living, whether it be hockey, football, soccer, basketball, baseball, or tennis. The reason for this is because kids become obsessed with a sport after either watching games on TV or attending games in person, but it is only when they attempt to go down the path of becoming a professional athlete that these kids realize that only a select few are actually capable of achieving this dream.
No matter if it is the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, only the best of the best will successfully play and compete at the professional level, due to the stress put on the body during competition, training, and travel. Those who do make it to the professional level are in for quite the payday during their career, as many athletes make more money in a single season than most people make in a lifetime. This is true with NHL players as well, who will use this money to help provide for their families when they retire, families that often include a daughter, and some of the daughters of these former hockey players have grown up to become very attractive women.
Here are the 15 hottest daughters of NHL players.
15. Diana Larionov
The Detroit Red Wings were a powerhouse throughout the 1990s, and a big reason for that was because they had a lot of very skilled players on their roster, including 5 highly skilled Russian players who played on the ice at the same time. This group earned the name “Russian Five” and defenseman Igor Larionov, was one of them, and he had a career which spanned almost 30 years as he began playing professionally in 1977 in the Soviet Union. After coming to North America to play in the NHL, Larionov went on to have a Hall of Fame worthy NHL career, and during this time he also had 3 children, including a pair of daughters. Diana, just like her sister, has garnered a reputation for enjoying the partying lifestyle.
14. Isabella Yzerman
There have been many great players who have played for the Detroit Red Wings in the franchise’s 90 years of existence, but not many have ended their careers having only played for them, but in Steve Yzerman’s case, he did just that. Yzerman is currently the General Manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning, but before that, he played a full 22 seasons in the NHL with Detroit, 18 of which were spent as the team’s captain; and when he retired in 2006, he did so with 692 goals and 1,755 points, making him one of the best forwards in league history. Steve has 3 daughters, and Isabella happens to be the hottest one, and not only does she have a great face and physique, but she is also an athlete like her father, as she plays lacrosse at the University of Michigan.
13. Brandi Roenick
With hockey, it is believed that the best and most talented players come out of Canada, and for the most part, the NHL is in fact mostly made up of Canadians, but there have also been great players from the United States, with Jeremy Roenick being one of them. Within the hockey world, there is a debate as to whether or not Jeremy deserves to be in the Hall of Fame due to the fact that he never won a Stanley Cup during his 18 year career; but he did manage to score 513 goals and 1,216 points, making him one of the top scoring American-born players ever. He has 2 children, including his daughter Brandi, who is an athlete in her own right via her passion for equestrian riding, and when she is not riding horses, she is either posting pictures on social media or attending her college courses for her psychology degree.
12. Carlin Domi
As a whole, the NHL is basically filled entirely with fast and skilled players who can all handle the puck, but it was not always like this, as just over a decade ago, it was commonplace for most teams to have an enforcer on their roster. An enforcer was a player who was basically there to be a physical presence, to protect the skilled players, and to fight, and if they scored every now and then, then management was happy. Tie Domi was one of these enforcers, and based on how he played and how much he fought, he managed to amass a total of 3.515 penalty minutes in 15 seasons, which is the third most in NHL history. Tie has 2 children, including his son Max who currently plays for the Arizona Coyotes, but he also has a beautiful daughter named Carlin who is living a life outside of hockey by attending college and posting on social media.
11. Caley Chelios
In every sport, there are some athletes who are somehow capable of standing the test of time to play well into their mid-to-late 40s, which is a truly impressive feat as most athletes retire in their mid-to-late 30s. Hockey has seen its fair share of ageless wonders as well, with Gordie Howe and the still active Jaromir Jagr being the most well known examples, but former NHLer and Hall of Famer Chris Chelios is on that list too. Chelios is currently the second oldest player to have ever played in the NHL, as he played his final game in the 2009-10 season when he was 47 years old, and in his 25 year career, he had a combined 948 points split between Montreal, Detroit, and Chicago, to go along with 3 Stanley Cup wins and 3 Norris Trophies. Chris has 2 daughters, with Caley being the more recognizable of the pair, as she’s currently a reporter for the Tampa Bay Lightning.
