This week’s Sports Stud is none other than 30-year old Canadian beefy NHL hockey player, Vincent Lacavalier. Although he grew up in Montreal, Quebec, he currently plays for Tampa Bay Lightening. Towering at 6’4 weighing over 200lbs, he’s a big boy! In 1998, he was drafted first overall by Tampa Bay, with the new Lightning owner Art Williams claiming that Lecavalier would be “the Michael Jordan of hockey”. Impressive! On March 1st (my birthday) 2000, he was announced as the Captain of the team (youngest captain in NHL history at 19 years old), but the next year it was taken away as he didn’t live up to the crazy expectations.
Fast forward to the 2003–04 NHL season, he played a key role in the team’s Stanley Cup victory, assisting on the Cup-winning goal. He was also named MVP of the Canadian National Team in the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, which Canada won.
In 2008, Lecavalier signed on for an eleven year $85 million contract extension with Tampa Bay – no big deal. He’s still captain of Tampa Bay Lightening, and last week, he made a surprisingly early return to the ice only four weeks after having surgery on his hand for a broken knuckle. With his return, the team won 2-1 in a shootout win against Atlanta.
The sexy hockey player in a shirtless photo holding his stick (left), while in the Sports Illustrated picture on the right, his jersey is visible, but his stick isn’t…where could it be?
This picture shows that he looks good on the ice, without his shirt on, and when he’s dressed up sharp. He does look very “Montreal” in the photo.
Lecavalier doing a slap shot. We’d certainly like to slap something. Even just tap.
He puts the “H” in hockey, and handsome. That doesn’t even really make sense, but he is handsome, right?
Again, looking hot, even though we’d love to see more pictures of him more skin.
