Eastern Conference Hottie "Extra"

This comes by request (which you know HftL LOVES!)!!!

Alot of you ladies would like to know a little more about one of the newest members of the Penguins (and the only one of the three newbies that HftL hasn't done yet) - Craig Adams.

Say "hello" to Mr. Adams, ladies!

He is the only hockey player hailing from Seria, Brunei (Brunei is a small, wealthy kingdom on the north coast of the island of Borneo), but he was raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada which is where he discovered hockey. He was drafted by the Hartford Whalers in the 9th round of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft (223rd overall) and his rights were later transferred to the Carolina Hurricanes in 1997 (after Hartford relocated). In 2005 he signed as a free agent with the Anaheim Ducks, but just two months later was traded back to Carolina and helped them to become the 2006 Stanley Cup Champions.

Sorry ladies, Craig is married to Anne Cellucci who's father was the former governor of Massachusettes and former US Ambassador to Canada, Paul Cellucci. Craig and Anne have a son named Rhys Argeo. They make a really sweet family. They met each other while they were attending Harvard where Craig majored in history and played hockey (1995-1999). The couple were married in Ottawa.

Here's a recent interview with him on a Penguins "off-day" (03/11/2009):

I might be wrong, but I remember reading an article mentioning that they met through a blind date and Anne was a wedding planner at that time.

I could have mistaken him for another hockey player though :P

@RQH - from everything I've read, they met while attending Harvard (I've added more links to articles I've read which lead me to believe this).

THANKS for your comment (keep them coming)!!

WOW, History, yummy.

History, from Harvard, that's just the caramel topping on the sundae!!

Anyone have a napkin, I need to wipe the drool.

Thank you for the info. He is more sexy in person skating around on the ice. No worries that he's married. Looking and drooling is no felony offense :)

I think I just fell in love with him. Any man that loves the Red Sox has the ability to steal my heart.

The Harvard bit doesn't hurt, either. :)
