They are arguably the nicest and most accessible of the professional sports stars.
But are NHL players also the coolest of the four major sports?
Some of the world’s most beautiful women certainly think so, including pop music sensation Carrie Underwood, who married Mike Fisher of the Nashville Predators two years ago.
Now, comes word that brunette siren Cheryl Burke of Dancing With The Stars has been seen on the town with NHL star Joffrey Lupul.
The pair reportedly attended the Jockey for a Cause event together on Wednesday in Rancho Santa Fe.
Underwood and Burke are hardly alone in their ahem, admiration, for NHL stars. It actually started in the 1970′s when New York Rangers defenseman Ron Greschner were wed for a time.
Although they eventually split, Hollywood starlets apparently keep romancing the NHL stars.
