One of the cool things about featuring a different player each week is getting to go a little bit deeper. Everyone knows that guys the likes of Henrik Lundqvist are easy on the eyes. It doesn’t end there, though. There is plenty of beauty no matter where you look.
This week’s Hawt Trophy winner may not be a household name, but we hope you enjoy meeting him. Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to present Alexander Sulzer of the Buffalo Sabres.
This dashing redhead is a native of Germany and has represented his country on the national team at the World Championships. He also played at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin and the 2010 Games in Vancouver.
He was drafted in the third round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Nashville Predators. He came over to North America in 2007 and began playing for the Milwaukee Admirals. He scored his first NHL goal on January 23, 2011 during one of his call ups to the show.
Alexander was traded to the Florida Panthers during the 2011 season, then signed with the Vancouver Canucks during the summer. On trade deadline day earlier in 2012, he was traded to the Buffalo Sabres. That’s where this picture of him and his adorable son Maximilian was taken.
If there is a season, we put a challenge before our readership. More pictures of this guy. Please.
And here we… go.
Carl Gunarsson of the Toronto Maple Leafs!
