Avoidance is key and that’s exactly what we’ve been trying to do here at The Pink Puck since Cosmopolitan magazine put out a list of the Hottest Guys in the NHL; but alas, it’s become impossible to ignore the list of 30 players. A list that was more than likely compiled from the first player to pop up in the search engine box when a specific team was typed in. Come on, Mike Green hasn’t exactly been a major player for Washington and somehow showed up numero uno, two years running. Half the list is bogus, while some players are more deserving than others. It isn’t just the list that’s lighting our lamps of fury- it’s the captions, anyone with a love for the sport can agree that “Helmet head never looked so good”, or “Oh, heyyy, Dennis”, are absolutely qualities necessary to win games, right? Wrong.

Perhaps we’re sounding a bit bitter, as female hockey fans, we’ve all noticed the dashing good looks of the NHL elite— but let’s face it, we love them for what they bring to the ice, not the locker room mirror. Sure, it’s all good looks, until someone takes a stick to the face, or spits a few teeth on the ice. Clearly the blood spattered smile and stitched up lip photos won’t be gracing the pages of Cosmopolitan anytime soon.

So, in light of the article, we’ve complied a list of the 30 hottest NHL players of our own… smiles don’t win cups, snipes do.
