You know what they say, behind every great man is a great woman. Dating a famous athlete is no easy feat, with all the training sessions your partner has to go through, not to mention the fame. However, these NHL hockey wives and girlfriends make it look easy. While their partners might be busy a lot of the time, they’re still there to support them in their athletic endeavors. Here are some of the ladies that are linked to the most known names in the NHL.
Elisha Cuthbert – Dion Phaneuf
While Dion Phaneuf is a Canadian hockey star, his wife Elisha Cuthbert is a star in her own right. You might recognize her from 24 or The Girl Next Door. They met in 2008 and officially tight the knot five years later.
Nicole Arruda – Drew Doughty
Drew Doughtey, who is an alternate captain for the Los Angeles Kings, met his sweetheart Nicole Arruda when the two were still in high school. They’ve been together through it all, officially tying the knot in Canada. They are now parents, and Doughty says that being a father makes being defeated in the rink still feel like a victory.
