High profile, professional athletes have notoriously been lucky when it comes to landing dates with very attractive ladies. From swimsuit models to actresses, it seems that these beauties have a natural inclination for the sporty man. Hockey players are no exception to this rule; beautiful and talented NHL wives and girlfriends are spotted on the regular at hockey matches and league events throughout the hockey season.
In recent years, there seems to be an increased curiosity and interest about who these NHL WAGs (wives and girlfriends) are. Websites have sprouted up all over the Internet with the latest hockey player dating gossip. Fans just can't get enough when it comes to the players' personal lives - and for good reason! These ladies have incredible careers, and spend additional days and hours raising their children while their hockey player partners are on the road. We are in love with the hockey momma style; these women prove that you can be a mom and still look incredible. Just in time for the play-offs, we're saying "move over, soccer moms!" and embracing these beautiful hockey matriarchs! Here are 15 Of The Most Gorgeous Hockey Wives Who Are Moms
15 Gena Lee Nolin - Cale Hulse's Wife
Gena Lee Nolin was already an established actress and model when she got hitched to hockey player hubby Cale Hulse in 2004.
The blonde beauty got her acting debut on The Price Is Right back in 1994, where she was one of Barker's Beauties. She would go on to land her most notable role, as Neely Capshaw in Baywatch, the following year.
The 46 year-old has appeared in several men's entertainment magazines, and has been named as one of the world's most attractive women on several lists. Before she met and fell in love with Canadian-born hockey player Cale Hulse, she was married to Greg Fahlman, with whom she has one son. She and Hulse married in 2004, in Arizona. The couple subsequently had two children together; a son named Hudson, born in 2006, and a daughter named Stella, born in 2008. We appreciate the longevity of this hockey couple's love; they have been married for 14 years, and seem to be going strong! Gena is one of the oldest moms on our list, but that doesn't make her any less of a smoke show! Hulse is now retired, so he can spend all of his free time with his beautiful wife and kids.
14 Kristy Muscolino - Corey Crawford's Girlfriend
Kristy Muscolino and Corey Crawford are a relatively new couple, but they didn't hesitate to jump into co-parenting together early in the game! The pair welcomed their first son, Cooper, in September, 2017. Prior to his relationship with Kristy, Crawford was engaged to his long-time girlfriend, Silvie Cormier, a fellow Canadian whom he met while playing junior hockey. The pair spent over a decade together, and were engaged for the final year or two of their relationship. Cormier was spotted with Crawford until the playoff season in 2013-14, but soon after, Crawford started to post photos without her, leading to speculation that the pair had split up. He then went on to casually date several other ladies, and got serious with Kristy, an executive fashion assistant from Chicago, in 2016.
This hockey mom proves that brains and beauty do not have to be mutually exclusive! A quick glimpse of her Instagram page confirms that she has impeccable style and a million dollar smile.
These two aren't engaged...yet, but we're sure that a proposal is imminent! Corey had a rough season, sitting out more than half due to injury. We're hoping to see more of these two (and cute baby Cooper!) in the 2018-19 season.
13 Emma Andersson - Henrik Zetterberg's Wife
Henrik Zetterberg and Emma Andersson are another Swedish dynamic duo on our list! Zetterberg is a professional hockey player who was drafted to play with the Detroit Red Wings in 2002. He has been the team captain for the last six seasons, and has led his team to win one Stanley Cup in 2008. His achievements also include winning a Conn Smythe trophy in 2008, an Olympic gold medal in 2006, the NHL Foundation Player Award in 2013 and the King Clancy Trophy in 2015. You could say that Zetterberg is pretty much good at everything he does, and marriage and parenthood are no exceptions to that rule! In 2008, he became engaged to beautiful, Swedish TV personality Emma Andersson. In 2010, the couple tied the knot in Molle, Sweden. In 2015, their son Love was born. The Swedish name is actually pronounced Loo-VEY, but in Michigan, where the family live, he is often the victim of name mispronunciation!
In Sweden, Emma's TV presence has made her somewhat of a homegrown celebrity. She has made several appearances on various reality TV shows, and she had a short-lived singing career, as well.
The family spend most of their time in Michigan, but still visit their summer house in Alnon, Sweden every year.
12 Lucie Vondrackova - Tomas Plekanec's Wife
Lucie Vondrackova might be married to one of the top professional hockey players in the NHL, but she rose to fame before she met hubby Tomas Plekanec. Plekanec is a Czech-born center, who was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in 2001. He played for the team for a total of 13 seasons, and was ultimately traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in February, 2018. His wife, Lucie, is also of Czech origin, and has made a career out of being a singer, theatre and film actress. Her reputation in Czechoslovakia is extremely favorable; she has gained notoriety and has won many awards for her singing and acting.
A cultural queen, Lucie also holds a degree of Doctor in Philosophy from the Charles University in Prague. She comes from a musical family that have Ecuadorian roots, and also speaks five languages.
She and Tomas were married in 2011, and the pair have two sons. Matyas was born in 2011, shortly after the couple wed, and Adam was born in 2015. Lucie has appeared in countless TV series', films and has released almost a dozen musical albums. She has definitely established a name for herself that has nothing to do with her famous husband. This dynamic duo prove that professional success and parenting can go hand in hand.
11 Noureen DeWulf - Ryan Miller's Wife
Noureen DeWulf is another hockey wife who already had an established career before meeting her sporty husband. The American born Noureen has Indian heritage; both of her parents were born in Pune, India, and immigrated to the United States before she was born.
The 34 year-old actress has appeared in over 50 films and TV series, and is best known for her role as Lacey in the TV show Anger Management. Her hockey player husband is goaltender Ryan Miller, who is considered one of the best in the league.
His career started with the Buffalo Sabres, and he is currently playing with the Anaheim Ducks. He spent half a season with the St. Louis Blues, and three seasons with the Vancouver Canucks. He married his partner, Noureen, in 2011, and the couple welcomed their first child in 2015. Their son, Bodhi Ryan Miller, lives with them in their family home in Vancouver, British Columbia. Before she met Ryan, Noureen was married to artist James DeWulf. She adopted his name (her maiden name is Ahmed) and kept it, even after the pair divorced in 2010, after 10 years of marriage. She seems to be loving her role as hockey wife and mom to little Bodhi!
10 Elisha Cuthbert - Dion Phaneuf's Wife
It is arguable that Elisha Cuthbert is more known than her professional hockey player hubby Dion Phaneuf.
In the early 2000's, Canadian actress Elisha rose to International fame when her role in The Girl Next Door established her reputation as one of the most attractive actresses in Hollywood.
Although she came from a small town on the outskirts of Montreal, she quickly rose to fame, and soon landed a role in the popular TV series 24. Elisha ranks among one of the most notable Canadian actresses, and she has amassed an estimated net worth of approximately $20 Million USD with her career. For a young 35 year-old mom, that's not a bad sum! A hockey fan herself, Elisha and Dion began dating in 2008. After dating for several years, the pair of Canadians wed in 2013, in a lavish ceremony that included 300 guests. Although Elisha is still active in the Hollywood scene, she has slowed down considerably over the last few years. She currently plays the role of Abbey in the hit Netflix series The Ranch. Elisha and Dion welcomed their first baby son, Zaphire, in December, 2017. Since February 2018, Dion has been playing with the LA Kings.
9 Stephanie Bergeron - Patrice Bergeron's Wife
Our final beautiful hockey wife on the list is Stephanie Bergeron, who is married to professional hockey player Patrice Bergeron. Patrice has played fourteen seasons in the NHL, all of them with the Boston Bruins. His professional accomplishments include winning two Gold Olympic medals, winning the world juniors championship and winning the world championship for Team Canada in 2004. Patrice is married to Stephanie Bertrand, a fellow Quebecoise who he has been linked to romantically since 2006. The pair dated for several years, and married after the hockey season wrapped up in 2013. They have split their time between their home in Quebec, and a house in Boston, for years. In October, 2015, the couple welcomed their first son, Zack Bergeron.
Patrice famously played a game against the Flyers just hours after his son was born, and secured a goal and an assist in celebration.
Not bad! Stephanie is an actress, but spends most of her time raising little Zack and supporting her hockey player husband! She is perhaps one of the most involved hockey wives, and is often sighted at games and practices along with her little mini man. Rumours have circulated recently that a second baby is in the cards for the pair in the near future.
8 Carrie Underwood - Mike Fisher's Wife
Carrie Underwood is perhaps one of the most notable hockey wives in the league. Her successful music career all began when she won season 4 of American Idol, back in 2005. Since then, she has become a household name in the country pop industry, and has sold over 20 million albums, making her the most successful winner of the American Idol franchise. With a net worth of over $85 Million USD, and 6 full length records released, Carrie's career has definitely been successful in the last decade! Luck in love is another blessing that Carrie has enjoyed.
She met her beau, hockey player Mike Fisher, in 2008, at one of her concerts. The pair were an instant match made in heaven, and they became engaged the following year. In 2010, they were married.
Mike was drafted by the Ottawa Senators for the 1999-00 season, and was traded to the Nashville Predators in 2010. Although he announced his retirement from professional hockey in 2017, he decided to make a comeback for one final hourra. In February, 2018, he signed a one-year contract with the Predators, with the hopes of leading the team to a Stanley Cup win.
7 Anna Kasterova - Evgeni Malkin's Wife
Evgeni Malkin is one of the most talented Russian hockey players in the NHL. He is wrapping up his 11th season with the Pittsburgh Penguins, who are battling against the Washington Capitals for a spot in the Stanley Cup semifinals. The 31 year-old has impressed the hockey world with his skills, and has accumulated several awards, titles and trophies over the years. Another trophy he has earned is the love of his beautiful wife, Anna Kasterova.
Anna, who hails from Russia, is a famous TV and media personality who had an established career before meeting her hockey player hubby.
They became engaged in November, 2015, just 6 months before their first son, Nikita, was born. They were married the following year, in May. Although she hasn't done any acting or television appearances in the last several years, she seems to have moved on to a new brand of entertainment: social media! She has over 75,000 Instagram followers, and regularly posts photos and updates about her family. She also maintains a personal website. The famous pair are owners of a restaurant in Russia, which is designed to look like the interior of a prison. They are both vocal about their support for Russian president Vladimir Putin.
6 Hillary Duff - Mike Comrie's Ex-Wife
Although this pair aren't together anymore, they were quite notable when they were married, making numerous public appearances, specifically at NHL games! Yes, I'm talking about tween queen Hilary Duff and her famous, now ex-husband, hockey player Mike Comrie. The Canadian player is now retired, but spent thirteen seasons playing in the NHL. He played for the Edmonton Oilers, the Phoenix Coyotes, the Ottawa Senators, the Philadelphia Flyers, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Islanders. No wonder he wanted to retire at age 31! In reality, an ongoing hip injury was one of the leading reasons for his retirement, and he also wanted to spend more time with his then-wife Hilary Duff, whom he married in 2010, after three years of dating.
Despite seeming to be a happy couple for several years, they would ultimately split, with Duff filing for divorce in 2015.
Their son, Luca Cruz, was born in 2012. Hilary Duff now has primary custody of him, although they continue to co-parent amicably. Both have stated that their son is their priority, and they would like him to grow up seeing his parents get along and not fighting. She is now dating musician Matthew Koma, and Mike Comrie isn't linked to anyone.

Spending his entire career with the Montreal Canadiens, he holds the record for most games played with one single team in the league. In April 2018, he played his 557th match with the team, making history despite having suffered a concussion and sitting out 13 games prior. Carey has been married to his wife Angela, since 2013.
