Hockey players are some of the toughest athletes in the world. They do all their work on a sheet of ice while moving gracefully on a blade of steel less then three centimeters wide. Unlike basketball players, they take multiple hits per game. Unlike football players, they play multiple games per week. They play through injuries, they stand in the way of a puck being shot at the net up to one hundred miles an hour and when necessary they drop the gloves and take matters into their own hands. Calling a hockey player an alpha male may be an understatement.
Even though they are alpha males and play a very dangerous sport, they are also husbands, family men and fathers. Many players will marry other athletes or their high school sweethearts and some end up with huge families. Its not surprising in the least that a lot of their children grow up to be athletes and celebrities as well. Sometimes they even become more famous then their fathers. Sometimes they go on to be hockey players like Bobby Hull's son Brett, other times they become wrestlers like Ted Irvine's son Chris Jericho, or they become musicians like Luc Robitaille's son Jessarae.
Their Daughters have equally impressive resumes. Some go on to follow in their fathers footsteps like Bobby Carpenter's daughter Alexandra who plays hockey for team USA. The daughter of Chris Chelios, Tara, is currently playing lacrosse for Northwestern. Some just go on to have normal lives like Sergei Zubov's daughter Anastasia who returned home to attend the International School of Moscow. Others have become models, singers, actresses, television personalities and pro golfers. While other daughters of former NHL players have simply become hot. Let's take a look at a few of the hottest as we count down the top 11 hottest daughters of former NHL players.
11 11. Caley Chelios
Caley's father, Chris Chelios, played in the NHL until he was 49 years old. He played with the Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Blackhawks, and Atlanta Thrashers. His fourth team, and helping make the case for Michigan being the birthplace of beauty, we have our first entrant from the Detroit Red Wings. Even though she was born in Chicago, while Chris was playing with the Blackhawks, she still grew up in Detroit and, clearly, there is something in the water in the Steel City. Caley plays lacrosse for Northwestern along with her sister Tara. She is also studying for a major in communications.
10 Anne-Marie Morrow
The daughter of former Montreal Canadiens great Guy Carbonneau, she is also the wife of former NHLer Brenden Morrow. The last few years of Guy's hockey career were spent playing for the Dallas Stars where Brenden was just getting started. Brenden fell in love with his teammate's daughter and they were married shortly after that. Anne-Marie was born in Montreal and moved to Texas when she was a teenager.
9 Alyonka Larionov
Igor Larionov is a three-time Stanley Cup winner with the Detroit Red Wings and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2008. His daughter has spent some time in the media including an unforgettable cooking segment on PensTV with Evgeni Malkin. She also admitted to eating Frosted Flakes out of the Stanley Cup, for breakfast, when it was her father's turn to spend a day with it. She attended 24 different schools, lived in 20 different houses and four different countries while growing up a child of hockey royalty. Something tells us she didn't have any trouble making friends at every new stop.
8 Isabella Yzerman
Since this is our second straight entry from former Red Wings, we are starting to think their may be something in the water in Michigan. Her father Steve currently works as the general manager for the Tampa Bay Lightning and he became a superstar and a Hall of Famer while playing center, and winning three Stanley Cups, for Detroit. Isabella followed in her father's outstanding foot steps in high school, by being a member of her lacrosse team that won a regional championship. She also went on to play for the University of Michigan where she studied English and was a sorority sister for Kappa Kappa Gamma.
7 Brandi Roenick
Having played 20 years in the NHL, Jeremy Roenick was known for having a tough, brash personality and also as a guy who was very giving to the fans. We would like to thank him right now for continuing to give to the fans by gifting the world with his daughter. Brandi is an accomplished equestrian horseback rider and is considered one of the best young riders in the US. She is hoping to get a spot on the US Olympic team to ride for them in the upcoming summer games. In the meantime, she is just happy attending college where she is majoring in psychology.
6 Julia Scorupco
She is the daughter of NHL journeyman Mariusz Czerkawski, who played for the Bruins, Oilers, Islanders, Canadiens and Maple Leafs before returning home to Poland while his daughter stayed behind to live with her mom in California. Her mom is a former James Bond Girl, who played in the movie GoldenEye with Pierce Brosnan, Izabella Scorupco. Like most people these days, she is documenting her life via social media, most notably Instagram which has a virtual ton of selfie pics. Julia is just getting started in her adult life, so here is to hoping for more great things to come.
5 Carlin Domi
Her Father, Tie, is the all-time penalty leader for the Toronto Maple Leafs. He has the third most penalty minutes in the history of the NHL. He played 16 seasons in Toronto and retired having played his entire career there. Her brother, Max, is a phenomenal rookie for the Phoenix Coyotes. Carlin is busy being a normal young adult, going to college and spending her time on social media.
4 Diana Larionov
The city of Detroit delivers yet again! Arguably the hottest of his two daughters, she also enjoyed growing up as hockey daughter watching her dad play. Diana and her sister, Alyonka, made waves on Instagram with a pool side photo shoot at the NHL awards in Las Vegas in 2014. One thing we know for sure is that she's absolutely stunning and that we can think Igor Larionov for bringing two beauties into the world.
3 Allison Micheletti
She is the daughter of Joe Micheletti who played for the St. Louis Blues and the Colorado Rockies in the early 80s. Since then, he has been a hockey analyst currently working for the NHL on NBC. Growing up she was determined to become a professional athlete in both basketball and soccer. An injury curtailed her dream and she was told she could either be a swimmer or a golfer. She chose golf and it has worked out for her pretty well since she turned pro in 2011. And just in case having a former NHL player for a dad isn't enough, she is also married to a former NHL player, Mike Modano.
2 Dominika Hasek
Dominick Hasek is one of the most dominant goalies in the history of the game. He played for the Buffalo Sabres, Chicago Blackhawks and Ottawa Senators. He won two Stanley Cups with the Detroit Red Wings making him our 4th former Red Wing to have a daughter on this list. In 2010, Dominika had an appearance on the show Czech's have Talent, where she scored all As and told the judges she learned to sing in the United States. With the voice of an angel and her natural beauty, we are thinking that super stardom is something that she can definitely achieve.
1 1. Paulina Gretzky
What can be said that hasn't already been said hundreds of times. Her father, Wayne Gretzky, has arguably the best nickname in the history of sports, as "The Great One". Her mother, Janet Jones, is a former actress that has appeared on the cover of Playboy. Paulina herself, has not shied away from the limelight either. She has been a model for magazines like Maxim and Flare. She released a CD called "Collecting Dust" (she really left the door open there for jokes, but let's carry on) which was her official singing debut. She is also currently engaged to golf pro Dustin Johnson and is the undisputed #1 of our list.
