The Chicago Blackhawks’ Patrick Sharp is not just a pretty face. However, a Sportsnet Canada ad plays up that attribute on set with Damien Cox.

That “pretty boy” was second in the league for games played last season with 82. He was ninth in goals with 34 and 15th in assists with 44, finishing the regular season a plus-13. In the playoffs, he had five goals and five assists in 19 games.

In 2012-2013, the Blackhawks were 25-0-3 with him in the lineup.

As teammate Corey Crawford would say, Sharp’s one of the “biggest bunch of beauties in the league.”


Carly grew up needing to know more about icing than its deliciousness on cupcakes. She's the lone daughter of four children, with a father who was among the last cut from the Midwest tryouts for the 1980 Miracle on Ice Olympic team. And she knows very little matches the thrill that happens from puck-drop to handshakes. A rink didn’t return to her hometown until she was gone, but she’s been able to see two younger brothers on the ice. She's their feistiest fan. Her other hockey loyalty lies with the Blackhawks--whether it's meant seeing games for $8 with student IDs when the Madhouse didn’t have much of a temper at all, or dancing to Chelsea Dagger at standing room only--there’s something magical about a roaring anthem, the Indianhead sweater, and the Original Six. A former journalist and current editor, she carries a penchant for excitement (and maybe even fighting) with a resume that includes working for Chicago-area newspapers, and television, including The Jerry Springer Show, as well as NBCUniversal in New York. After East Coast living and a return to the Chicago area, the new Mrs. is giving Graceland a go with her Southern Gent, who now shares her adoration of the game, and their rescue dog, Doc Holliday. Other interests include Cubs, Bears, Illini, Crimson Tide, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, baking a mean pineapple upside-down cake, Kate Spade accessories, and a properly coordinated cardigan for every ensemble.
