"Eye Candy" of the Week: Kristopher Letang

[UPDATE] I just recently found out that the guys on the team call him by the nickname "Tangers" - how cute is that?!!

So this "eye candy" came to me by suggestion, but it didn't take very much persuading! The suggestion came from "swissmiss" who, awesomely enough, is from Europe and got a chance to see the boys (including Letang) in person at the hotel in Sweden!! Here's what she had to say:

I think it's time for an eye-candy special on Kris Letang! Not only is he smokin hot, but he's going to be stepping up this year on the PP, so deserving of our praise & attention. And he has fab hair! Check it out in this pic I took from the first game in Sweden ..(not so close up but you get the idea!)

I saw he and the guys outside their hotel in Stockholm (I live in Europe so I went for the weekend) and my jaw just about fell to the floor to see him in person. yowza.

"Yowza!" is right!! Take a look at the cool picture she sent along - GREAT picture!! I bet she enjoyed the game!!

I've added a few more pics for your viewing pleasure (I have to agree about the hair; I think it's one of the things that makes him so hot -- look at it just falling into his face as he looks down onto the ice)!

Couldn't agree more about his "eye candy" status...and the adorable French Canadian accent doesn't hurt either :)

Don't know if you've seen this yet, but here's a great article on him: http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/sports/penguins/s_593007.html?source=rss&feed=8

I did read that article, Lauren (which is where I picked up on the "Tangers" nickname -- what's even cuter is that Sid called him that)!!

I thought it was a good article for this specific post, but I didn't know how to work it in -- I think I'll try with an update including it shortly - THANKS!!

I'm sorry, what was I supposed to notice in the bottom pic??

I never got past Staalsy... (sweet mother, he looks good)

Oh, that's right Letang's hair. Oh, yes, awsome.

He is such a doll...glad to have him noticed not only for his skill on the ice, but his eye candy skill off of the ice...

ok, I make it a rule for myself to never have normal female feelings for any hockey player, cause it takes away my credability as a hockey fan (to men), but Kris Letang makes me have feelings I should not type about.
OMG I get all tangeled up inside and just stare at him in wonder.
