According to the Washington Times (and thanks for the tip from Diane D.!), Washington Capitals Matt Hendricks' wife, Kim, gave birth to twins on Thursday, November 10, 2011; one boy (Gunnar) and one girl (Lennon). Hendricks explained the names to Washington Times (too cute!):
"My mother's 100 percent Swede, so Gunnar stands for a Scandinavian warrior," Hendricks said after Saturday's game. "With Lennon, we're both fans of the Beatles and John Lennon and we liked it and it wasn't very popular and didn't seem too over the top."
CONGRATULATIONS TO MATT, KIM, and the entire HENDRICKS FAMILY!!!
BRIAN McGRATTEN (Nashville Predators)
McGratten and his girlfriend, Michelle (@babycupcake84 - "soon to be Mrs. Big Ern"), got engaged over Christmas (she tweeted that it was "official" and posted a picture with the ring) - thank you for the tip, C.B.:
babycupcake84 - "Well it's official. I'm getting hitched! Best Christmas ever!"
MAXIM LAPIERRE (Vancouver Canucks)
this one is another "secret," but there is a Canucks tumblr page created by someone who's friend's brother plays for the Canucks with the info and pics ... Lapierre and his girlfriend, Natasha, got engaged and I don't know much more than that (photo courtesy of canuckslovex3 tumblr).
