Dishy Goalie Monday-Henrik Lundqvist

I know it's been awhile, but we're back with DGM. Seeing as how the 2010-2011 hockey season is at a close I was looking for inspiration, I did what most modern writers do when they're looking for inspiration... I googled. I'm not ashamed to say that I googled "shirtless hockey goalie" because you would too (or already have).

The result of my search is the one and only Henrik Lundqvist. Now I will fully admit that I have respected Mr. Lundqvist's skills in net for quite awhile, but before today I never paid attention to his engaging smile or powerful eyes. Boy was I missing out.

Now I think that the pictures mostly speak for themselves....

Ode To a Goalie

(Bear with me guys, poetry has never been my gift)


Few words can describe Nic
Fewer yet for his big stick


The things he inspires in this chick
Is captured with a cameras click


As he bends, stretches, and kicks
All his movements quick


I become as coherent as a brick

Terrible right? Well, it could have been worse. I could have found some way to include certain other words that rhyme with Nic in there.

Anyway, Meet Nicola "Nic" Riopel. He's a 2009 Flyers draft pick. As much as I'd love to hold that against him I can't. He's just too stinking adorable.

Seriously, that accent! That hair! Oy vey. How can you not want to take him home and... uh... admire him. Yup. I wasn't going to say anything other than admire.

Friday Quickie

Sorry about the absence guys, but I really have to believe this will make it up to you.


You guys remember Connor Knapp right? He was one of the stars of one of our earliest posts. Turns out, he's on Twitter and he's adorable.

He was also kind enough to prove my hypothesis that goalies know exactly what they're doing when they stretch.

I really hope Miami of Ohio comes back to our local College tournament. I'll reserve a memory card just for him.
