A relationship is a funny thing, because it can be wonderful, at times complicated, and sometimes even disastrous in nature, but whatever type of relationship it is, we have all had at least one in our lives. There are really three main types of relationships a person can have in their life: a familial one that revolves around your parents, siblings, and other family members; a social relationship that deals with your friends; and of course a romantic relationship that you share with your significant other, whomever that may be. A romantic relationship is the one that truly feels like a roller coaster, as there are always ups and downs for various reasons, whether you are dating, living together, or married. But in the end, if you really love the other person, the relationship will always work out.
Professional athletes have these kinds of romantic relationships as well, but the difference between us and them is the fact that their personal lives garner far more attention than ours because they are in the limelight. A big reason why an athlete's romantic relationship is often highly watched and even reported on is the fact that athletes, whether they play in the NFL, NBA, MLB, or NHL, almost always happen to be in relationships with incredibly beautiful women. Hockey players in particular share their lives with some truly gorgeous women, whether they be a wife or girlfriend, and since these women are dating professional athletes, they are referred to as WAGs. In an attempt to showcase these lovely women, here is a list of the hottest WAGs on every NHL team.
30 Anaheim Ducks - Blakeny Robertson
The Anaheim Ducks have been considered to be one of the top tier teams in the Western Conference for many years after their first ever championship season in 2008, and one of the biggest contributors to that success has been Corey Perry. The star winger has played the entirety of his now decade long career with the Ducks, and in that time he has been a 50 goal scorer, a 100 point producer, and a Stanley Cup champion; but last summer he added husband to his list of accomplishments when he finally married his longtime girlfriend, Blakeny Robertson. The two met while Perry was still playing for his hometown minor hockey team in Peterborough Ontario, and even though the pair live in California, they come back to their home town each offseason. Perry may have great judgement on the ice, but since he managed to land Blakeny, the hottest WAG the Ducks have, his off-ice judgement is just as good.
29 Arizona Coyotes - Madison Kazarian
Tie Domi will likely go down as one of the most well known enforcers and fighters in NHL history, and even though he primarily made his living using his fists, his son Max’s career will likely be defined more for scoring goals. This upcoming season will mark Max Domi’s second year in the NHL, and even though he is only 21 years old, he currently has the most attractive girlfriend of all the Arizona Coyotes’ players. Madison Kazarian is a 21 year old former Canadian Football League cheerleader and current aspiring model for the Toronto based promotional agency called The Concierge Club. The couple have been dating since 2014, and if they stay together throughout the length of Domi’s tenure with Arizona, she will continue to be the hottest WAG of the Coyotes for many years to come.
28 Boston Bruins - Stephanie Bergeron
The Boston Bruins have had some great players over the span of their storied history, and no one would disagree that over his career with the team, Patrice Bergeron has joined that list of great players. Ever since he debuted with the Bruins in 2003, Bergeron has not only been one of the team’s best centremen and point producers, but one of the best in the entire league as well. His on ice skill is superb, but when he returns from a road trip, or leaves the home rink after each practice and game, he goes home to the hottest WAG the Bruins have. Stephanie Bergeron has been with her husband for at least ten years now, with the couple having officially been married after the 2013 season had come to an end. Stephanie has attempted to delve into the world of acting, but motherhood has caused her to put that profession on the sideline for now, and it will probably be some time until she is ready to get back into acting, as she and Patrice are now expecting their second child together.
27 Buffalo Sabres - Dayna Douros
Ryan O’Reilly may be playing for the Buffalo Sabres now, but for the first six years of his career he was a member of the Colorado Avalanche, and while there, he was quite the productive player, which is why Buffalo traded for him and signed him to a seven-year 52.5 million dollar contract extension. Last offseason though, O’Reilly was arrested and charged for impaired driving and leaving the scene, a case that has yet to be settled; but luckily for him though, he has the support of his beautiful long term girlfriend, Dayna Douros. The couple first met when they were both teenagers, and they did not start dating until after they spent a lengthy amount of time as friends. Ryan may play in Buffalo, but Dayna still resides in Denver where she works as a yoga instructor, and even though she does not live in the city, she is still the hottest WAG on Buffalo’s team.
26 Calgary Flames - Elizabeth Mackay
In 2014, the Calgary Flames drafted then 18 year old centerman Sam Bennett with the fourth overall pick, which made him the highest pick in the franchise’s history, and after completing his first full year with the team last season, it is apparent that he will have a good career in the NHL. Now, Bennett may have just turned 20, but his youth does not take away from the fact that he is dating the hottest WAG that the Flames have in Elizabeth Mackay. If you were to see pictures of this couple on social media, you would find that they look adorable together, especially when they go on romantic outings. Without a doubt, the best part of those pictures are Elizabeth herself, who looks stunning in every photo, which is not all that surprising considering that she went to beauty school.
25 Carolina Hurricanes - Cristine Prosperi
Ever since winning the Stanley Cup in 2006, the Carolina Hurricanes have had a difficult time garnering any type of success as a franchise, and have been stuck in a pseudo-rebuilding phase for several years as a result. Now it seems that they are rebuilding the proper way, and that forward Jeff Skinner, will likely be a part of their core group going forward, especially after his performance last season. In the first four years of his career though, Skinner was plagued by injuries including concussions, but fortunately for him, the injuries probably allowed him to spend more time with his beautiful girlfriend Cristine Prosperi. The couple have been dating since 2012, and if some of you think that Cristine looks familiar, it is likely because you have seen her on TV. This 23 year old Canadian beauty is an actress who has appeared in multiple shows, and TV movies, but she is mostly known for her role on the teen drama, Degrassi.
24 Chicago Blackhawks - Lindsey Vecchione
For the past six years, no NHL franchise has been more successful than the Chicago Blackhawks, who have won three Stanley Cups in that period of time. Their success has hinged heavily on the players they have drafted, specifically those like Jonathan Toews who is literally the backbone of the team’s core group of players. Toews has a lot going for him, he is a three time champion, he is likely the best centreman in the league, he is now making over 10 million dollars a year, and he is in a relationship with arguably the hottest WAG on this list. Lindsey Vecchione is a now 29 year old model, and she and Toews have been together since 2012, and when you look at her, it becomes quite obvious that this Chicago native, with her voluptuous figure and stunning face, is a natural model, which makes Toews a very lucky man indeed.
23 Colorado Avalanche - Ashley Grossaint
Last week, the Colorado Avalanche made headlines when their head coach, the legendary goalie Patrick Roy, decided to resign and leave the team due primarily to ideological differences with the rest of the front office. The Avalanche may be in need for a new coach this upcoming season, but whoever that coach may be, they will be inheriting a team with some pretty good talent on it, talent which includes their 2009 third overall pick, Matt Duchene. Now, Duchene may be one of the team’s three best forwards, but he also happens to have to hottest WAG amongst his teammates. Ashley Grossaint is a blond beauty who has been dating Duchene since 2011, and after five years, their relationship took the next step when the two got engaged a few months ago. This past summer, Duchene may have won gold at the World Championships as a part of team Canada, but it appears as though he struck gold in his personal life as well.
22 Columbus Blue Jackets - Brenna Dubinsky
The Columbus Blue Jackets may currently be one of the youngest franchises in the NHL, but those two decades have not been noteworthy whatsoever, as they have only had two real successful seasons. The team is slowly getting things together though, as they have drafted and acquired players to make themselves better, with one of these acquisitions being Brandon Dubinsky. Columbus traded for Dubinsky during the 2012-13 season and since then, he has been one of their top two centremen for the past three seasons, but when they traded for him, he brought more than just his ability to play hockey, he also brought his wife Brenna. Brenna is a former athlete herself, as she played basketball at the University of Virginia, but now she makes a living as a model who has appeared in several magazines.
21 Dallas Stars - Katie Hoaldridge
To many who watch the NHL, it appeared as though the Dallas Stars came out of nowhere two years ago to now be considered as one of the best teams in the entire league, and a big reason for that sudden success is thanks to their potent offense which is led by the team’s captain, Jamie Benn. Now, Benn is a highly productive scorer and play-maker, and the overall best player on the Star’s roster, so it makes some sense that he would also be in a relationship with a woman who is hotter than his other teammates’ wives and girlfriends. Katie Hoaldridge is a beauty from the great state of Texas, who is an athlete in her own right, as she was apart of the University of Texas’ track team, and briefly ran professionally. Since 2014, Katie has been working as a model, and she is a perfect example of beauty and brains as she holds degrees in communications and psychology.
20 Detroit Red Wings - Emma Andersson
As of now, the Detroit Red Wings have made it into the postseason 25 straight years, but that incredible streak may truly be in danger of ending next season if the team is unable to properly address its lack of scoring. Whether they do or do not make the playoffs next season, one thing will be certain, that the team will be well led by their veteran captain, Henrik Zetterberg. It is true that he will have a lot resting on his shoulders next season, but at least he will be able to find some form of comfort at home where he will be spending time with his beautiful wife, Emma Andersson. For those unfamiliar with Swedish television, Emma is considered to be a celebrity, as she participated in, and won Sweden’s version of Survivor, and went on to be the host of several other shows. The couple started their relationship in 2007, and were married three years later, in what is still considered one of the largest and most expensive weddings in Sweden’s history.
19 Edmonton Oilers - Lauren Rodych
The Edmonton Oilers have been one of the worst teams in the NHL ever since they lost to Carolina in the 2006 Stanley Cup Final, finishing at the bottom of the standings virtually every season. The one good thing to come out of so much losing, is the fact that the Oilers have accumulated a lot of great young players over the years through the draft, and one of those players is Jordan Eberle, who has been with the team since 2010. Eberle may just be 26 years old, but that still makes him one of the more veteran players on the team, and as a veteran, he provides the team with more than leadership, he also brings the hottest girlfriend. Lauren Rodych has been dating Eberle since 2007, and even though they have not gotten married yet, it looks like their relationship is the real deal. While Jordan is off scoring goals, Lauren sells tea and tea making accessories primarily through her own website.
18 Florida Panthers - April Reimer
There was a time when the Toronto Maple Leafs believed that James Reimer was going to be their next number one goaltender, but like most things in life, Toronto’s plan did not go as well as they would have hoped. After the Leaf’s 2013 third period collapse against the Boston Bruins in game seven of their first round playoff series, Reimer’s numbers the next couple of seasons slid drastically and he suffered through multiple injuries. As a result, Reimer was shipped out of Toronto last season, and after this year’s free agency started on July 1st, he signed with Florida where he will likely spend the next five years of his career. Accompanying him to Florida, will be his very attractive wife April, the woman he has been married to since 2010. This gorgeous brunette from British Columbia, garnered a lot of media attention during the aforementioned playoff collapse, when she appeared to glare at Elisha Cuthbert (more on her later); but all that is behind her as she and James head to the Sunshine State with a baby on the way.
17 Los Angeles Kings - Nicole Arruda
Ever since Wayne Gretzky played for them, the Los Angeles Kings have at best been a middle of the pack team in the NHL, but all of that changed four years ago when the team suddenly became one of the league's best all around teams, winning two Stanley Cups in 2012 and 2014. As far as championship teams go, the Kings were stacked in every position, including their defense which was led by Drew Doughty. If you had to make a list of the five best defensmen in the NHL, Doughty’s name would undoubtedly be on it, because in his now eight year career with the Kings, he has been exactly that. Along with being a great blueliner, Doughty also has a beautiful woman by his side in the form of Nicole Arruda, an Ontario native who is a programmer and tech venue specialist. Nicole currently lives in Toronto where she also spends her time as a public school track coach and a pathways coach who helps low-income students to graduate.
16 Minnesota Wild - Danielle Spurgeon
In the United States, Minnesota is considered to be the State of Hockey, so it was a no brainer for the NHL to bring a team back to the state after the North Stars were relocated to Dallas in 1993, with the new team taking up the name Wild. In the almost twenty years since the Wild entered into the league, the franchise has garnered at best, a moderate level of success, a level that the team hopes they can greatly improve upon next season. If they do improve, it will partially be thanks to players like Jared Spurgeon, who has currently played his entire six year career with the team, where he has gone on to serve as one of the Wild’s top two defensemen. Jared is a lucky man though, because for the past four years, he has been married to his wife Danielle, a gorgeous brunette who hails from the city of Edmonton and attended the University of Alberta.
15 Montreal Canadiens - Katia Pacioretty
The Montreal Canadiens are the most storied franchise in all of hockey, as their 24 Stanley Cup Championships are the most of any team in the NHL, and many of the greatest players in league history have worn a Canadiens’ jersey. With so many great players in their history, it should come as no surprise that Montreal have had some great team captains, and it is up to the team’s current captain, Max Pacioretty, to lead Montreal to another championship. It is true that as the captain, Max has a lot of responsibility, especially in the hot-bed that is Montreal, but at least he has a gorgeous wife to take his mind off of those responsibilities. Katia Pacioretty is a Russian-born former professional tennis player who is also the sister of former NHL player Maxim Afinogenov. She and Max have been married since 2011, and they now have two children together, and she is just one example of Russian woman being the hottest WAG on a team.
14 Nashville Predators - Carrie Underwood
The Nashville Predators have been one of the hardest teams to beat the past two seasons, and even though the franchise is not even 20 years old yet, it has the most famous WAG of any team in the NHL, as well as one of the hottest. Carrie Underwood is a country music superstar, and undoubtedly the most successful person to ever win the American Idol singing competition, and she has been married to Predators’ alternate captain Mike Fisher since 2010. The couple first met in 2008 after one of her concerts, when Fisher was still a member of the Ottawa Senators, but after they were married, Ottawa traded him to Nashville in 2011, which worked out very well, considering that Underwood lived in Nashville. In 2015, they welcomed their first baby together, and since their marriage does not seem to be in any trouble due to their busy schedules, they will most likely remain married well after Mike retires as a member of the Predators.
13 New Jersey Devils - Ashlee Casper
Kyle Palmieri spent the majority of his career with the Anaheim Ducks where he helped offensively as a moderately productive player, but after a combined five seasons with the Ducks, he was traded to the New Jersey Devils during the 2015 offseason. In his first season with New Jersey, Palmieri reached a career high in goals (30) and points (57), and he was rewarded for that with a five-year contract extension, which is great because it will keep him close to the great looking woman in his life. Ashlee Caspar, is a stunning brunette who is a native of Albany, New York, and attended Albany University where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in political science and a minor in business administration. Ashlee is also fairly active in politics, as she worked as an intern for both a New York state and U.S. senator, internships which helped her to land a full time job at a government relations company.
12 New York Islanders - Aryne Fuller
The New York Islanders have the distinct honor of being one of the only teams in NHL history to win the Stanley Cup four years in a row, and they did so thanks to having a team filled with high-end talent and Hall of Fame caliber players. That string of championships though, all came in the early 1980’s, and now in 2016, the Islanders are trying their best to once again become a championship contender; and they will be able to accomplish such a thing, if they build the right team around their captain and all-star player, John Tavares. Tavares is currently the face of the Islanders’ franchise and their best player, but in regards to his other teammates, he is currently in a relationship with the hottest woman, who may in fact be the perfect girlfriend an athlete can have. Aryne Fuller is a native of Ontario, who has a Bachelor’s degree in science kinesiology (the study of human and nonhuman animal-body movements) and a Masters degree in rehabilitation therapy and physiotherapy, which will come in real handy if Tavares suffers any serious injury.
11 New York Rangers - Kaylee McDonagh
Looking back on it, the Montreal Canadiens probably regret trading away Ryan McDonagh to the New York Rangers, because as it turns out, this former twelfth overall pick is actually quite the effective defenseman. McDonagh made his NHL debut with the Rangers during the 2010-11 season, and he has stayed with the team ever since, becoming captain in the process. In 2012-13, he did not play in that many games thanks to the lockout shortened season, but when that year’s offseason came around, it did not matter how many games he played because he finally married his highschool sweetheart, Kaylee. Of all the women on this list, Kaylee is probably the most in tune with her man’s profession, as she is a former all-state and all-conference hockey player. In her playing days, Kaylee was a forward, and also served as her team’s captain, but that is not all she took away from school, as she is also a sports medicine Major.
10 Philadelphia Flyers - Ryanne Breton
In terms of success, the Philadelphia Flyers have been one of the most roller coaster teams in the NHL, especially the past couple of years, where they went from being a bad team, to a Stanley Cup finalist, to an okay team, and then back to being a bad team. The Flyers do in fact have some really good players, like their current captain Claude Giroux who has been playing for them ever since his brief debut during the 2007-08 season. It took some time, but after a few years, Giroux became Philadelphia’s best all around player, which is why he was signed to an eight-year extension in 2013; and thanks to that extension, he will continue to have the hottest WAG amongst his Flyers’ teammates for at least a couple more years. Ryanne Breton has been with Giroux for over three years now, and even though she was born and raised in Ottawa, she lives in the city of brotherly love alongside her man, where she has her own career as a professional organizer.
9 Pittsburgh Penguins - Anna Kasterova
The Pittsburgh Penguins, are the current defending Stanley Cup champions, and after the season they had, it was a very well earned title win, but it is quite possible that things would have turned out differently if one of their two superstar players were out of the lineup. Former second overall pick, Evgeni Malkin, is one of those superstar players, and he has been one of the league’s top scoring forwards for years now; but what many outside of Russia may not know, is that he has an extremely hot fiancee. Anna Kasterova is a celebrity in her Russian homeland, as she is a television personality who has appeared on and hosted multiple shows. The couple started dating sometime in 2013, got engaged in November of 2015, and had their first child just three months ago.
8 Ottawa Senators - Elisha Cuthbert
Dion Phaneuf is now an eleven-year NHL veteran, and even though he has played for three different teams in his career, he has never had to find housing outside of Canada. Phaneuf is a big defenseman who started out his career in 2005 with Calgary, where he played until 2010 when he was traded to Toronto, and he stayed with the Maple Leafs until he was again traded at last season’s trade deadline to the Ottawa Senators. His defensive abilities have come into question the past few years, but one thing is certain, whichever team he was on, his WAG was the hottest. Now in terms of overall popularity, Elisha Cuthbert is probably the second most well known woman on this list, as she is a Canadian actress and model who is best known for her roles in the shows 24 and One Big Happy; but she is also mostly known for her lead role in the movie The Girl Next Door. Elisha started dating Phaneuf in 2008, and since 2013, the couple have been enjoying married life, making Dion one hell of a lucky man.
7 San Jose Sharks - Aneta Netolicka
Last season, after so many years of being considered Cup contenders and failing to advance all the way, the San Jose Sharks finally made it through to the Stanley Cup Final. Granted, they lost to Pittsburgh, but it was still a major step in the right direction, especially when it comes to the experience gained by some of the team’s younger players like Tomas Hertl. As of now, Hertl has played in three NHL seasons, and based on his performance so far, it is clear that he will be a major piece of the Shark’s offense going forward, and since he will likely become a star in the league, it should come as no surprise that he has an incredibly attractive girlfriend. Aneta Netolocka, like her boyfriend, is from the Czech Republic, and she is quite athletic herself, as she is a former gymnast; and let us be honest, if she wants to, she can definitely make a career for herself as a model.
6 St. Louis - Yana Tarasenko
In 2010, the St.Louis Blues were incredibly fortunate to basically steal Vladimir Tarasenko with the tenth overall pick, and ever since he debuted with the team during the 2012-13 season, he has shown that nine other teams made a mistake in not drafting him. In the now four years he has been in the NHL, Tarasenko has grown into one of the league’s top offensive threats, while also now becoming the most important member on the Blues’ roster; which is why the team went all out and signed him to an eight-year contract last summer. Tarasenko had offers from teams in California and New York, but he chose to stay in St.Louis, a decision that some believe was partially based on the wishes of his wife Yana, and when you look at her, you can see why it would be hard to disappoint someone so lovely.
5 Tampa Bay Lightning - Andrea Talmadge
The Tampa Bay Lightning have been one of the top five teams in the NHL the past two seasons, which is a great thing for the franchise considering that their last truly eventful season came in 2004 when they won the Stanley Cup. The lightning have the makings of a championship team, with great forwards, and defensmen, but they also have what all hockey teams need: a talented goalie. Ben Bishop may have started his career in 2008 with St. Louis, and then moved on to Ottawa, but it was not until he came to the Lightning via trade in 2013, that his talent truly began to shine, as he is now considered to be one of the league’s better netminders. Bishop may be a number one goalie, but he is also a fairly private person who does not enjoy making parts of his personal life public, including his girlfriend, Andrea Talmadge. It is true that the two do get photographed at the NHL awards and other charitable events, but if you had a girlfriend who looked like Andrea, you would probably want as many people as possible to know about it.
4 Toronto Maple Leafs - Molly Robinson
Even though they are considered to be the most popular and highest valued franchise in the NHL, the Toronto Maple Leafs have been sort of a laughing stock around the league because of their inability to make the postseason, and failing miserably in the instances in which they do. For a long time, Toronto was in need of a rebuild, and fortunately for fans, that time has finally come, and if he is lucky, Tyler Bozak will be a vital part of the team’s future. Bozack debuted with the team in 2009, and since then he has now played seven seasons with the team, where for a good chunk of that time, he was considered to be Toronto’s best centreman. When he is not playing hockey for the Leafs, Bozak can be found at home or out and about with his beautiful girlfriend Molly Robinson and their relatively still newborn baby; and if he stays in Toronto, Molly may very well remain the best looking WAG on the team for years to come.
3 Vancouver Canucks - Noureen DeWulf
When he was with the Buffalo Sabres, Ryan Miller was widely considered to be one of the league’s best goalies, and his numbers for most of his eleven seasons with the team, certainly reflected that. When 2014 came around though, he was traded to St. Louis for a short stint, before signing with the Vancouver Canucks later that offseason; and when he arrived in Vancouver, he brought his incredibly hot wife as well. Noureen DeWulf and Miller have been married since 2011, and if she looks familiar to some of you, it is because she is an actress who has appeared in several movies and television shows. She is best known for being in movies like West Bank Story and The Back-up Plan, and for playing a main role on the FX sitcom, Anger Management.
2 Washington Capitals - Nastya Shubskaya
There was a time when the Washington Capitals were in financial turmoil and in danger of possibly being moved to another city, which is why it is an outright miracle that the franchise landed the first overall pick in 2004, a pick that turned out to be the great Russian superstar, Alexander Ovechkin. As of now, Ovechkin has played eleven seasons with the Capitals, and in all of that time, he has been the best goal scorer in the league; and even though he has not won a Stanley Cup yet, he has a gorgeous woman at his side. The final hot Russian WAG to appear on this list is Nastya Shubskaya, a stunning brunette who is viewed in Russia as a socialite. Nastya, unsurprisingly, is a model, but she also wishes to delve into the world of acting, as she completed a brief course at the New York Film Academy and graduated from a Russian film school.
1 Winnipeg Jets - Emily Byfuglien
Rounding up the list of each NHL team’s hottest WAG is Emily Byfuglien, the wife of Winnipeg Jets’ defenseman Dustin Byfuglien. This couple currently have two children together, and they live on a lake-house in Winnipeg where they enjoy going boating when the hockey season is done. Emily, loves shows like The Biggest Loser and Sons of Anarchy, and she really enjoys anything that stars actress Melissa McCarthy. Dustin may have initially made a name for himself in the NHL as a forward when he was a part of the Chicago Blackhawks, but it was not until he was traded to the Jets franchise that he was able to move to his natural position on defense; but the move also allowed his wife to become the hottest WAG on a team, instead of virtually being hidden behind the shadow of Toews’ girlfriend.
