Kris Letang Welcomed His Son to the World!!

For many of you, this may not be breaking news, but you all know that I'm not able to devote as much time to this blog as I used to so (you know my motto here!) BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!!

CONGRATULATIONS to Tanger and Catherine
on the birth of their first child, a son, they named Alexander
who was born last week!!

CONGRATULATIONS should also go out to Mike "Rupper" Rupp for the birth of his and his wife's fourth child (MANY THANKS to D.L. for passing along this info and the adorable pics that she found and passed along)!!  A little girl they named Marleah Grace was born this past summer on August 30th.  From Rupp's twitter account (@Rupper17):
"Thank you all for the great wishes and prayers! We were blessed with our 4th little one yesterday! Marleah Grace"

TONS of 2012 Hockey Engagements, Weddings, and Babies!!

Hockey is seasonal and hockey players lives seem to be cyclic to accomodate that season if you haven't already noticed.  Weddings are in the summer and babies usually come in the fall / winter.

And there has been plenty of activity this past summer just as any other when it comes to weddings and even a few babies and engagements.  A great BIG THANK YOU to all of you (too many to name individually, I apologize!) who have been emailing me the news to keep me updated and HftL's lists complete!!

Since the list is too great to dedicate a special post to each (if you haven't noticed, it's been a long time since I've posted here -- been keeping plenty busy with writing about the Pittsburgh Penguins for!), here's a rundown of the NHL engagements, weddings, and babies that I wasn't able to post earlier as they occurred over the summer months (if I'm missing any, ladies, please be sure to email me or post in the comments - as many as there are, I'm sure I've missed some!):
