A well-dressed man is a dream for all girls, right?
Every year, Vanity Fair does a best dressed list. As I was reading the recently released list, I came across the NHL’s very own Henrik Lundqvist for not only the first year, but his second year in a row. This list is one of the most prestigious in fashion, and it is no secret that in the eyes of most fashion icons, sports and fashion do not mix. Most often, actually, athletes display the most flamboyant outfits making the snobby fashionistas groan in disgust. So for an NHL player to be on the list two years in a row, that’s kind of a big deal.
Now I know that Lundqvist isn’t the only NHL’er with style, so in honor of that, I rounded up a list of the top 10 best dressed men in the NHL. What could be better than that? Below is my list of the players who know their way around their closet.

We’ll start it off with the ever classy Patrice Bergeron. In this case, a picture is a worth 1,000 words, and I included TWO. That should speak for itself.
2. Gregory Campbell, Boston Bruins
A leather jacket and jeans makes for a fashion forward d-man! A spread for John Varvatos give assurance that he knows how to dress.

Taking risks is what fashion is all about. Adding bright pops of color to black makes any outfit POP!

A nice, well-fitting three-piece suit does wonders for your respectability in the fashion world. Well done, Brooks!

P.K. knows what he is doing when it comes to dressing up. I mean, have you seen his bright orange suit from the NHL Awards?! This suit is no different. Cheers to P.K. and his chambray suit. He is fashionably knowledgeable.

I applaud you Steven in your navy pinstripe suit. The best is the effortless look of no tie and shirt unbuttoned. Put together, but still fresh.

Leather jacket, All Saints henley and dark wash jeans… A hat trick for Captain Serious. All men should be taught that this is the correct way to dress. That is all.

Patrick Sharp is arguably one of the most beautiful men in the NHL. These pictures, and his classic style are probably the reason why. With an appearance from the other Patrick, P.Sharp shows that he can rock a best dressed title.

Henrik shows off just why he takes the crown as “The King”. A nice fitting suit only does wonders for his reign. He can really rock it.

A cotton blazer and well-fitting khaki’s is how more men should be dressing. One could only wonder if his girlfriend dresses him. Either way, he is the real Stanley Cup Winner.
