Welcome to the Big League, boys!

29 03 2012

This week has had S & I spinning. Two of our college favorites have officially made it to the NHL and since they are officially out of our league — I figure it’s time for a blog shoutout¬†(Let’s face it, getting your own post on Hockey’s Finest means you have REALLY made it into the big leagues -S). We’re crying as we right this. As much as we love to see them in the big leagues, we’re sad yet another boy has slipped through our fingertips.

Enter Jason Zucker.

I think a few months ago I mentioned him in a post when I went to the DU vs BU game. It didn’t take long for S to fall in love — especially since he was a Wild prospect.¬†(Minnesotan Pride! -S)

Just incase that team wasn't yummy enough...

This 5’11” 174lb Newport Beach native was drafted by Minnesota in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft (2nd round, 59th overall). He’s finally 20…which makes our love for him a little less creepy. He makes his NHL debut tonight against the Florida Panthers. So ladies, make sure to look out for number 16! I’m positive he’ll do amazing in Minnesota.

Enter Alex Chiasson.

Poor Chuck. This girl has been a trooper. She’s had to put up with my fangirling all season and it’s all because of this boy.

Two words: French Canadian.

Not gonna lie, I didn’t even know he existed until this season. Well — wait, that’s a lie. I knew he existed. But I never cared. UNTIL! A friend from work mentioned being friends with him. FRIENDS! That meant I had a connection, right?! Wrong. I’m way too shy for that. So, I just bit my lip and listened as she told stories. His dorky sense of humor is definitely what caught my attention.

This 6’4” 195lb Montreal native has been a BEAST for BU this year. He led the team in points. 15 Goals, 31 Assists. Total BAMF. He was drafted in 2009 by the Dallas Stars (2nd round, 38th overall). He’ll be finishing the remainder of the AHL season with Dallas’ affiliate, the Texas Stars.

Good luck to these fine boys. We can’t wait to watch you guys grow as athletes.

*sigh* Time to go scratch them off our “could be” list, S…
